St Andrew's

Bromley-by-Bow, London

The first phase of St Andrew’s, a residential-led scheme close to the London 2012 Olympic venue, provides 194 homes rises above the standard of many high-density regeneration developments and creates a real sense of place.

The first part of a larger scheme, Block A of St Andrew’s brings much-needed family housing and community facilities, as well as new residents and investment, to a deprived area of east London. When completed, there will be 964 homes at St Andrew’s.

The development consists of a courtyard block of six buildings, around a shared garden, designed by architects Allies and Morrison working for Barratt Homes. It is located on the west side of a three hectare site, formerly home to a decommissioned hospital.

Attention to detail, inventive use of brick, and a creative approach to massing result in a scheme that integrates well into the local area – raising the bar for future development – and offers an engaging and distinctive character.
