Axe Street, IG11

Comprising 96 affordable apartments in a mix of dwelling sizes and tenures, Axe Street is a sophisticated new residential development and an integral part of the wider regeneration of Barking Town Centre. The design is characterised by the bold façade, which dramatically changes in scale from the three storey brick building of Axe Street to the contemporary six storey copper building overlooking the busier St Paul's Road. All apartments are situated around open ground floor courtyards or roof terraces, which are accessible to all the residents.
