Gunmakers Wharf

This new housing and regeneration scheme in east London is located on the Old Ford Road to the south of Victoria Park. It sits within the Victoria Park Conservation Area, next to the Hertford Union Canal and currently has a light industrial use.

The development comprises 121 new mixed tenure homes including five bedroom family homes as well as studio, one, two and three bedroom units together with commercial space at the ground floor level.

The four storey scheme, developed through extensive consultation with local residents, presents a modern take on the brick warehouse building. The blocks respond to the sensitive surrounding context while creating a new public room.
