Haptic is working with The Collective on a new co-living tower in East London. The accommodation is designed for Graduates that wish to reside within a larger community. The building will provide incubator space for start-ups, cafe and amenity spaces. Located on a strategic corner site to the north of the Blackwall Tunnel, the proposal forms a new gateway into London. Haptic are working up a proposal that responds to several conservation areas in the proximity of the site, providing significant enhancements to the public realm.
The architectural proposal comprises a brick base, responding to the perimeter block context and completing the corner. A lighter, contemporary part of the building sits above this base, terminating is a taller, enclosed roof terrace.
