Mint Street is a new-build development designed by Pitman Tozer Architects for Peabody, providing 67 new homes for rent, shared ownership and private sale. It is one of the first schemes in London to deliver affordable rented housing under the Affordable Rent Model, a Government initiative introduced in 2012.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanReplacing a single-storey of light industrial units and a car park, the new £11m development is located on a busy urban site alongside a railway viaduct in Bethnal Green, East London. The development creates a new London street, Mint Street, a paved pedestrian route between the overground and underground stations at Bethnal Green.Save this picture!© Nedko DimitrovThe 7 storey brick building curves in line with the adjacent railway viaduct. Providing well laid out accommodation, the building includes a mix of one, two and three bedroom homes on all levels. It updates the typology of the traditional mansion block, using housing to make city streets for the 21st century.Save this picture!© Kilian O’SullivanSpacious and light filled apartments are orientated southeast with living rooms overlooking the railway. In between living rooms and the rail line, glazed winter gardens offer private amenity space and create a ‘buffer zone’ to provide acoustic and visual separation from the noise of passing trains. Bedrooms are located on the quieter north-western side of the development, overlooking a communal courtyard.Save this picture!© Kilian O’SullivanThe building is characterised by the playful use of different brick types including green glazed bricks employed on the ground and first floors at Mint Street to create a distinctive base and contrast with Staffordshire Blue Engineering brick above. The 4 storeys above are cantilevered beyond the line of the base, emphasising the horizontal quality of the street elevation whilst the brick detailing accentuates its curve. The upper level is recessed, creating terraces to the top floor apartments, which offer expansive views of the city skyline.Save this picture!© Kilian O’SullivanA private landscaped courtyard with play space is situated to the rear of the building, providing communal outdoor space to all residents.Save this picture!© Kilian O’SullivanProject gallerySee allShow lessA Future Without Slums: Too Good to be True?ArticlesBeyond Ruin Porn: What’s Behind Our Obsession with Decay?ArticlesProject locationAddress:Mint Street, London E2, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.
