Marcon Place

Location Hackney, London
Type New build, affordable housing
Size 21 homes
Client Genesis Housing Association

This 21 home scheme is 100% affordable (socially rented) and accommodates a range of unit sizes including family housing.  Potential overlooking was avoided with a punctuated metal and glass screen, designed by local artist Pat O’Leary; and design issues caused by an awkward shaped site resolved by use of a cantilevered first floor. Construction was completed in April 2016.
