Grange Road

Grange Road, Plaistow

We have had a long association with this site in Plaistow, East London. Initially we were approached by the new owner of a plot of empty ground to the right hand side of the entrance to the East London Cemetery. Despite a negative pre-application enquiry we managed to obtain planning approval for 5 flats on that site.

We were then approached by the owner of the left hand side of the entrance and we subsequently obtained an identical approval for that site with a mirror image of the first building.

Given the now symmetrical buildings being approved we went back to the council with two separate applications to add an extra floor to each building.

The design has greatly improved the massing of the buildings and when complete will signify a true gateway in to this popular local green space.
