Mint Street

A 21st-century reinterpretation of the traditional mansion block providing 67 peaceful, well-proportioned flats on a noisy site next to a railway in east London

Commissioned by Peabody, one of London's leading social housing providers, this block is a mixture of affordable rent, shared-ownership and private sale apartments. The project also creates a new pedestrian street, allowing passage between local rail and underground stations.

The building is designed to meet the Mayor's Interim London Housing Design Guide and the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.

Pitman Tozer worked with Galliford Try Partnerships to complete the building by March 2014.
