Hannibal Road Gardens is social housing project set around a community garden in Stepney. The proposal replaces a problematic strip of garages and creates a fourth side to a square within an existing housing estate with 3 slab blocks forming the other sides.

The newly landscaped and densely planted community garden created in the centre of the square will be overlooked by a delightful new terrace of 8 contemporary family houses. The new row of houses is conceived as a continuation of the timber garden fences of the existing housing blocks, being constructed from timber and configured as a series of stepped and notched south east facing garden terraces. The accommodation is predominantly made up of large family houses (3, 4, 6 bedrooms).

These will be 100% affordable, 50% of which are to be socially rented.

  • High density, large houses created on a difficult, single-aspect site.  
  • Innovative notched terrace typology, creating a variety of amenity spaces and outlooks. 
  • All courtyard houses have their own front door and a minimum of two large courtyards / roof terraces.   
  • Great example of collaborative approach to planning, working closely with Tower Hamlets Planners and Highways Officers.
