Rivergate Centre, Minter Road, IG11

The Rivergate Centre is part of Barking Riverside, a joint venture between the Homes and Communities Agency and Bellway plc which will deliver a total of 10,800 homes over the next 25 years.

The cornerstone of the Rivergate Centre is an exemplary primary school. The design provides very large and airy classrooms closely connected to the external play areas and avoids corridors, with internal circulation through top-lit breakout areas that will be used for team teaching and small group work.

The Rivergate Centre creates a distinctive and welcoming place at the heart of the new neighbourhood, the design of its shared civic facilities, spaces and landscape providing a focal point at the heart of the growing community.
