Settles Street Mews
With its previous incarnation as both warehouse and car repair works, the site located in East London’s Whitechapel was disused for sometime before the team at Zachary Pulman Design Studio undertook the development.
Initially intended to house 12 units, the project and design was complex from its inception, due to the site’s proximity to terraced properties, a car park, a school, and several industrial units neighbouring the build on all sides and the complications of party and boundary wall considerations. Despite these obstacles, our architects and design team identified potential for further units within the existing footprint of the site.
With a wealth of experience guiding projects and developments (both residential and commercial) through the planning process, Zachary Pulman Design Studio was successful in acquiring consent to increase the scale of the project by an additional 7 units, comprising of 5 terraced houses and 6 contemporary apartments, all of which were sold off-plan.
The concept, with its stylised, fin-like abutments and basement light wells, complete with gardens, is a brave and characteristically modern approach to the terraced mews brief and a prime example of how the team incorporated sound design solutions in each of the projects.
