Fleet Street Hill Project

Peter Barber Architects have submitted a planning application for a delightful new tree lined public square of large terraced houses between Brick Lane and Shoreditch in the East End of London.

The scheme employs the practice’s trademark terrace/courtyard hybrid housing typology so that every home has its own street edge front door and good sized outside space in a ground floor courtyard and inset roof terraces.

Arcaded frontages echo the industrial vernacular of Bishopsgate Goods Yard while defining an informal terrace area at the edge of the square for the use of each family.

For the most part buildings alternate between three and four storey properties. The square is entered through two intimately scaled mews streets with steps cascading into the square from the adjacent railway bridge.

A pencil thin tower is located on a prominent corner on the axis of Pedley Street alongside the entrance to the square.

“I think it’s brilliant that it will give local people a lovely new public square and community centre, and fantastic that 25 large families with children will be able to remain in this very desirable central location immediately next to the park, in generous size houses rather than flats.”
