Thomas Road, Tower Hamlets

Dormers Court is a striking, copper-clad apartment block - at seven stories high it forms part of a wider regeneration of this former industrial area in Tower Hamlets. This challenging site has been transformed with dramatic use of fins to the front and copper cladding to the rear. It's a bold design and high-quality build which unlocks the potential of this tight urban space.

Located at the western end of Thomas Road next to Limehouse Cut, the homes are affordable housing for the nearby Dollar Bay development, also by One Housing Group. There are 64 high-quality affordable homes including 43 general needs, 16 shared ownership and five for sale. A landscaped canal side garden is to the rear and all homes have private balconies. A stone's throw from Canary Wharf and good access to the DLR and tube the unique building has brought warmth and quality, unusual for the area.
