The third site for the UK government’s Design for Manufacture competition, won by the SixtyK consortium, with Sheppard Robson as lead consultant producing the masterplan and architectural design for the site of the former Rowan Road High School. The 6.05ha site holds 217 new homes, comprising new-build houses and the conversion of the locally listed school into flats. Façades have been designed with pushed-out bays facing north, east façades to maximise winter sun, and pushed-in bays for shade facing both south and west. The scheme includes a proposal for a new medical surgery and a community hall.

The site incorporates a new 2.6ha park, improving local biodiversity and providing educational and leisure space. The masterplan and houses are designed to EcoHomes ‘Excellent’ standards, and incorporate renewable energy generation. The scheme is highlighted in the English Partnerships’ and Housing Corporation’s Urban Design Compendium 2, which links good urban design with an optimal approach to environmental sustainability. Many of the homes incorporate photovoltaic panels that partially form the roof structure. The efficiency of these panels is maximised through independence roof elements from the building form, optimised for solar orientation.

London architectural photography by Simon Kennedy of Tower Bridge House by Rogers Stirk Harbour Architects, an energy-efficient speculative office building. The design of the building is intended to provide a visual link between the historic Docklands and the City of London, and the modern glass facade resonates proportionally with the traditional warehouse buildings adjacent to it.

These photographs were made using a Canon Eos 5d mark ii, Canon EF 17mm f4 TS-E, Canon EF 24mm f3.5 TS-E, Canon EF 45mm f2.8 TS-E, Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L.
