Acanthus Architects LW was commissioned by Network Rail to provide proposals for a residential development in East London. The linear development site runs along Mantus Road in Tower Hamlets and is bounded to the north by a railway viaduct. An entrance court at the western end of the development leads into the site and a central urban square, surrounded by a new community centre, links the development to the existing park to the south. The landscape design associated with the development seeks to visually link and unify the external spaces at ground level and create a clean uncluttered streetscape, with a uniform treatment of high quality finishes.
