Barchester Street Housing

Metropolitan Workshop has received planning permission for the redevelopment of 83 Barchester Street, Poplar, London E14 for Canary Wharf Group.

Barchester Street Housing

The scheme is for 115 new affordable homes on the site of former industrial buildings in the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area.

Barchester Street Housing

The site is occupied by a 1939 factory building and a 1956 warehouse which were both last in use as a document storage facility. Three new buildings and retained elements of the existing buildings will enclose a new communal yard space.

Barchester Street Housing

A new six-storey building will replace the former warehouse building and new four and five storey elements are set within the existing walls of the factory.

Barchester Street Housing

The distinctive saw-tooth profile of the factory is echoed in the new roof profile as a series of spines that successively step up from Balladier Walk and Barchester Street. The new elevations are composed primarily of brickwork which include recessed stretchers and cross motifs which reference the existing Festival inspired architecture on the adjacent Lansbury estate.

Barchester Street Housing

A new link building connects creates a threshold to the central landscaped yard.
The new homes are part of Canary Wharf Group’s affordable housing commitment which will be part of its new development phase.
