Jolles House is a sensitive infill development of 70 new apartments on an existing east London estate. The project integrates with mid-rise neighbouring building and creates a new landscaped courtyard within the Bow Bridge estate. 90% of the new homes are for affordable rent and shared ownership.
The new Jolles house replaces an existing two-storey block containing only 12 flats to provide new affordable family homes. The project also rationalises the site layout to provide a positive frontage to Bromley High Street and create more open spaces with play facilities for all ages.
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.
The designs for the news homes and garden square were developed in consultation with residents, the Bow Estate Board and neighbours. The project is currently on site and is due to be complete in 2020.
