Digby Road, Homerton

Situated in Hackney, these flats provide core commercial space at ground level and 100% affordable housing apartments above. The high quality finish includes facades clad in terracotta rain screen tiles, built to reflect local industrial buildings. Some of the flats have been designed for wheelchair use and to meet local ethnic provisions. Built over the Channel Tunnel rail link, the block has a playground on the roof and the highest green wall in Europe.
