Housing completed in former Olympic Village!
N05 comprises 48 affordable family homes for social rent with retail and community use and over 1,000 sqm of Neighbourhood Equipped Area of Play (NEAP) that offers a range of play opportunities for children of different ages for the wider community.
The striking triangular building for Get Living results from the geometries of Celebration Avenue and the orthogonal layout of East Village and shelters the play space from the splayed window reveals. The triple-aspect wheelchair-accessible flats are located at the prominent ‘prow’ of the building with balconies offering panoramic views across East Village.
A palette of high-quality, durable materials, robust grey brick and cream precast concrete, and generous private balconies mark this building as an exceptional example of social housing. Credit to HG Construction (contractors) and MSMR Architects (Delivery Architects) for delivering the building to such a high standard.
