ColladoCollins has been invited to develop a detailed Planning Application by Finebeam Ltd for the redevelopment of Abbey House, Newham.
The design approach has been developed over the course of an exemplar consultation process including several Pre-Application meetings, local and key stakeholder consultations as well as the local Design Review process and a thorough analysis and understanding of the site and its immediate and wider context.
Whilst the site is in a highly sustainable location immediately adjacent to Abbey Road DLR Station it also sits just south of Abbey Gardens, which contains a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and west of a small scale terrace of housing. This juxtaposition has led to us exploring a number of diagrams for the site in an effort to respond positively to the extremely contrasting scales and uses surrounding the site.
Our approach seeks to characterize the area without resorting to mimicking historical patters.
