Brunel Street Works, London
Brunel Street Works is a pioneering new neighbourhood next to Canning Town and leads a £3.7 billion regeneration programme bringing 975 homes, public spaces, restaurants, cafés, shops and creative workspaces.
Brunel Street Works provides a vibrant new urban quarter on a highly complex site. The 2.5 ha GLA owned area measuring 0.5 km long and only 25-70m wide, is a narrow area of ‘left over’ land between transport infrastructure.
As London intensifies, the challenges of designing around transport and infrastructure are ever more acute.
L&P Engineering completed RIBA Stages 3-7 from 2015-2022. The design and construction of Brunel Street Works reflects how everyday needs can affect design and this building overcame the challenges of building directly next to London City Airport, London Underground, DLR and road network.
L&P Technology designed the landlord security, assisted with the apartment data/ICT design, and helped coordinate the Fibre connectivity and TV solution via a 3rd party specialist to all 975 apartments.
Residents benefit from a number of on-site amenities designed to create a sense of community. They will have access to co-working areas, residents’ lounges, a games room, yoga studio and a number of outdoor planted terraces with exceptional views across London. At ground level, new pockets of public realm across the site connect the development to the surrounding area.
