Wickside, Hackney

Mipim AR Future Project Award 2014

Wickside is a 3.4 hectare canal-side development on the edge of London’s Olympic Park. It occupies the site of a former refuse yard, and forms part of the ongoing transformation of Hackney Wick and Fish Island.

Wickside provides around 500 homes and 300 jobs. Absorbed into its urban fabric are a number of existing buildings which become anchors to a creative industries cluster at the east of the site.

Residential typologies include apartments, penthouses, terraced houses, garden studios and detached cottages. Other uses include an art gallery, shops, restaurants, a foundry, creative studios and a brewery.
