In 2017 Telford Homes acquired Stone Studios from the JV Groveworld and PTE Architects. The medium-density mixed-used scheme replaces existing warehouse and office space with new loft apartments, and affordable workspace designed for local artists and creatives.
Its new public realm consists of landscaped yards and pedestrian lanes, with routes to the Queen Elizabeth Park. Benefitting from direct access to Hackney Wick Station, the scheme enjoys a sustainable location. It is largely car free (apart from disabled car parking) and benefits from 100 per cent secure bicycle parking.
Given the tri-Borough (including Newham and Tower Hamlets) Air Quality Management Area, climate change, adaptation, mitigation and resilience measures – such as net-positive biodiversity green infrastructure and brown/blue-roofs – will help improve local air quality. Residents and users will be encouraged to participate in sustainable lifestyle activities.
Stone Studios is the first project that I have been the Project Manager on. So, it is pleasing that the teams’ work has been recognised by the Considerate Construction Scheme with Telford Homes’ highest score of 44/50.Stephen Pedro, Project Manager
