The project is part of the Hackney Council’s Housing Supply Programme, an initiative focussed on unlocking smaller sites across the borough. The scheme delivers new affordable and shared ownership homes on a former garage site near to Daubeney Fields, while making a new public route and playable mews for existing and new residents.

Reclaimed materials and permeable jointing mortar deliver entirely permeable external surfaces combined with attenuation deliver green-field run-off rates and reduce expensive, carbon intensive below ground pipework. Climate resilient plantings on the street edge help connect to green infrastructure in the park opposite.
