AWA are delighted to have been appointed as part of a framework agreement to carry out the MEP design for a combined new build and refurbishment development in East Ham. The proposal is to create 185 homes at the Town Hall Annexe site on Barking Road, as well as a café/restaurant as part of the complex.
The locally listed Town Hall Annexe is to be retained and converted into residential units, including commercial and concierge facilities. The existing Didsbury Centre is to be demolished and replaced with two new residential buildings.
Built in 1939, the Town Hall Annexe is a three storey locally listed building fronting Barking Road. It originally formed part of an impressive municipal complex for East Ham Urban District Council and falls within the East Ham Conservation area.
The proposals involve retaining the original Town Hall Annexe building and extending onto its roof, with further development to the rear of the site. The proposed 185 new homes will range from studio apartments to one, two and three apartments, all with the benefit of a private balcony.
There will also be a new café and the scheme will include a communal courtyard garden between the buildings, high quality landscaping and children’s play space. Roof terraces above the new buildings will form additional communal amenity space for residents.
The site will be served from a central energy centre using the latest in sustainable technologies.
The proposed development will be within an existing and established residential area of Newham and will be of high quality design to fit in with the local surroundings. The new private rented sector residential units will contribute towards Red Door Ventures’ objective to improve the quality of Private Rented Sector housing in Newham to the benefit of residents, particularly young professionals, couples and small families.
