Pumphouse, Waltham Forest


In conjunction with Clarion Housing Group, our scheme redeveloped half of the Pumphouse Transport Museum site that was being used for the storage of old vehicles to provide a mix of 21 apartments and large family housing which are for affordable rent and low cost home ownership.

The scheme is designed to meet Lifetime Homes Standards and Code Level 4 for sustainability incorporating photovoltaic panels, high levels of insulation, air tightness and high efficiency services. The new buildings are arranged around a central mews that will enhance the existing urban grain and provide units that are accessible from the street. The roofs to the mews housing directly reference the bold roofscapes of the Edwardian and early Warner housing that typify the area, and also the dramatic saw-tooth roofs seen on much of the Victorian industrial architecture of the area – including the Pumphouse.
