Jolles House is a sensitive infill development of 70 new apartments on an existing east London estate. The project integrates with a mid-rise neighbouring building and creates a new landscaped courtyard within the Bow Bridge estate. 90 per cent of the new homes are for affordable rent and shared ownership.
The new homes also have large private balconies and terraces which provide a rhythm to the brick facades. The design uses generous access galleries to provide social spaces and enable homes to be dual-aspect.
Designs for the homes and garden square were developed in consultation with residents, the Bow Estate Board and neighbours.
