Design ID were employed by Craftstone to design and detail bespoke precast elements including structural lintels, cladding and the main feature of a rooftop Belvedere consisting of columns and roof slabs. This completed project provides affordable homes for first time buyers in Walthamstow with Pocket Living. Located on a residential terraced street and close to the town centre, the development sensitively responds to the massing of adjacent buildings. The layout is efficient and functional, whilst promoting a sense of community through shared amenities. The design builds upon the existing character of the surrounding area, taking inspiration from the legacy of the William Morris School that previously occupied the site and from the Warner Houses that are particular to Walthamstow.
