Building London Planning Awards - Finalist - Best New Mixed-Use Scheme


Dalston Lane Terrace is a conservation-led, mixed-use regeneration project for Hackney Council, which sympathetically blends heritage with contemporary architecture to create 44 new homes and 1,000sqm of retail space.

The design brings a severely dilapidated late-Georgian period terrace back to life, creating a coherent piece of architecture that significantly improves the townscape. The design is a demonstration of stitching the local historic fabric into a new development, preserving the visual ancestry and spirit of a place that is now thriving once again.

Ultimately, Dalston Lane Terrace is a shining example of design triggering the revival of the high street, showcasing how a dilapidated or unused terrace can be converted for modern retailers, as well as new housing – all with outstanding accessibility.

“Huge thanks to Child Graddon Lewis for their design and outstanding delivery of Dalston Lane Terrace, reviving this crucial part of our Borough. To a very large extent the devil, or god, is in the detail.”

David Mitchell, Hackney Council, Senior Development Manager
