PRP Studio

Across the four east London estates collectively known as the Parkside Estate, PRP has developed a number of small infill sites to address current overcrowding in the area. These sites are to be occupied by high quality family homes with mixed tenure, and range in size from single-storey conversions to a large site of over 40 new homes. The primary objective was to create a sense of place that fully integrates with the surrounding environments and is unique to each site. The sites have been controversial and PRP has worked closely with the community to address any concerns.
