Islington & Shoreditch Housing Association chose PRP to design a series of measures that would enhance the Higham Hill Road neighbourhood in east London. Among the implemented proposals were measures such as renovating shop fronts, tree planting, resurfacing pavements and new exercise equipment for Higham Hill Recreation Ground.
PRP also designed new accommodation, which replaced garages and short-term bed-sits with two buildings, delivering 24 units in a variety of dwelling typologies. All accommodation is dual aspect, taking advantage of natural light and ventilation, and is designed to Lifetime Homes standards. A fully affordable development, Higham Hill demonstrates how quality and innovation can be delivered, regardless of tenure.
