We’re leading the competition-winning team delivering the first of five legacy housing developments in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Our vision for a vibrant family community is informed by the key design themes of accessibility and inclusiveness.

The location offers the best of both worlds: urban and connected, but also green and spacious. Our design capitalises on these qualities. We’ve added a generous, inclusive public realm – including shops, cafés, restaurants and nurseries – linked by green spaces open to everyone.

By dedicating more than 75 percent of the housing – which includes maisonettes, flats and townhouses – to three-bedroom homes, we’re aiming to attract families and form a characterful neighbourhood that’s integrated with the surrounding park but still retains a unique sense of place. Chobham Manor’s mix of houses will build a diverse, engaged community around shared spaces and resources, transforming the park into a thriving part of East London.
