It’s a bit like seeing a building undressed on site today at Mapleton Crescent SW18. The last few pods are being craned in, before our green goddess puts her clothes on – a fetching set of green tiles.
Stunning new Hackney scheme for 29 local first time buyers
Rosina Street E9 was designed by Hackney-based Waugh Thistleton Architects, and completed in March 2017. The Pocket flats were sold at a 20% discount to the surrounding market and the building is now home to 29 local first time buyers. It’s the second Pocket Living scheme in Hackney, and it’s one we’re especially proud of – when you look at these photos, you’ll see why!
Sail and Juxon St SE11, all set for Spring!
It’s the first day of Spring, and for the first time in what seems like months, London’s city makers are starting to think about spending time outside again.
So it’s great timing that our gorgeous new buildings in North Lambeth, Sail and Juxon St SE11, have outside space to suit all residents.
When you walk through the covered entrance at Juxon St SE11, you enter a wonderful walled courtyard garden with benches underlit by LEDs and pretty young trees. It will be a great place for residents to meet, mingle and hang out.
Pocket Living was delighted to receive planning permission from Haringey council last week, for our most ambitious scheme to date, West Green Place N17.
This allows us to deliver 98 Pocket homes, which will be available to local first time buyers at a 20% discount, establishing another strong community of owner occupiers. West Green Place will also include with a new community centre for the benefit of the whole local community .
New Greater London Authority targets mean that London will lead the way for zero carbon homes in the UK
We are pleased and proud that the Greater London Authority (or GLA) are championing a drive towards zero-carbon homes in the UK. Last week we welcomed our environmental consultants XCO2 to talk us through how this new policy will work for us.
It has been Pocket’s busiest year to date, and most celebrated…
Since January we have launched seven schemes across five boroughs and moved many city makers into their first homes. The Pocket team have been hard at work!
And we are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised for our contribution to affordable housing across London with these four awards:
Hello Mountearl Gardens SW16!
Mountearl Gardens SW16 is another great example of the way Pocket Living brings architectural quality to areas of London popular with first time buyers. We’re really proud of our latest scheme which made creative use of this site set on the corner of the handsome estate off Leigham Court Road. Previously home to old garages, we worked with HKR Architects to create a building comprised of one, two and three storey blocks that optimises the site without compromising the views of existing residents.
The back of Western Road UB2 overlooking the garden
Our latest Pocket building on Western Road in the heart of Southall is complete with Pocket owners settled in and enjoying their homes. I am sure you will agree that this is one handsome building! There are 36 one bedroom homes at Western Road UB2, all sold for £165,000 and designed for us by the architectural practice JTP.
