Hanging Gardens of Homerton

Homerton High Street Landscape Masterplan

TEP has recently completed landscape proposals comprising a series of tiered gardens and roof terraces for a proposed residential development on Homerton High Street in London. 

TEP was commissioned to prepare the landscape proposals for the regeneration of a 0.6ha site on Homerton High Street, which is set to deliver 264 homes in multi-storey blocks with commercial uses at ground floor.

TEP’s design team worked alongside CZWG Architects and DP9 to create a new landscaped public realm that will complement the commercial offer, as well as facilitate easy movement into and through the site. Our design creates amenity spaces for residents on multi-level podium decks, playful landscapes for younger children, and varied habitats for wildlife. Wide pavements lined with trees allow safe and easy passage for pedestrians with additional spill out space to animate the street scene.

By encompassing the roof spaces into the overall design, it increases the amount of shared amenity space, providing doorstep play features, seating, lawns, ornamental and wildlife friendly planting. The design will also dramatically improve on-site biodiversity to meet the London Plan’s Urban Greening Factor, through a variety of measures including using varied substrate depths to encourage different plants to establish and by introducing small log piles to support a variety of invertebrate species.

The design enhances what is a unique and interesting architectural scheme, which has now been submitted to Hackney Council for planning consideration and is currently awaiting determination.
