Karakusevic Carson Architects for Hackney Council
Contract value: Undisclosed
GIA: 34,000m²

Phase Two A&B of this large estate development delivers 116 mixed-tenure homes. The entire project will, over 18 years, replace 438 existing homes with 925 new ones, including an additional 100 council houses. It is inspiring to see the intense level of commitment in this clearly collaborative local authority and architectural team; negotiating inclusively and overcoming numerous obstacles in the current harsh governmental and commercial environment. They are very articulate proponents of high-quality placemaking and long-term neighbourhood sustainability.
