Tarling Regeneration Project

Studio Woodroffe Papa as Architects

S333 has just completed 32 apartments and houses as part of the Tarling Regeneration Project bringing large family houses into the centre of the city


The Tarling Regeneration Project is a 211 unit development of mixed tenure and accompanying commercial program in Shadwell, East London by One Housing Group (formally Toynbee Housing Association), whose aspirations are to build for mixed local communities.


Over the years Shadwell has witnessed cycles of devastation and rebuilding, S333 and Stock Woolstencroft worked together to transform these post-war housing estates into an active street based urban fabric with 4 distinct urban blocks.


Project Description


Block 3, at the eastern edge of the new development, occupies a slot of land that is bounded by the remaining estate and the DLR Railway Viaduct. The brief called for a wide variety of housing types ranging from 1 bedroom apartments to 10 person, 6 bedroom houses. Given the restrictions of such a difficult, small site, the primary challenge was to provide the necessary amenity spaces.


The additional challenge was to deliver the qualities of a large, single-family homes (secure parking, plenty of outdoor space) on a residential street, in a secure and protected environment. This was achieved by letting the building volume fill the site and allow the wedge shaped site to deliver the different size houses and apartments required


Our approach was to re-think the traditional terrace block, combining elements of the terraced house with elements of the patio house within an ‘urban building’. The new organization gives privacy and intimacy a range of break-out spaces – patios, roof gardens, terraces, balconies – suitable for families as large as 10. A carport creates a buffer from the street while the roof is given over to a large generous terrace and play area.


The result is a new concept of urban living in a tough inner city environment that offers a diverse range of living with secure amenities.
