olympic park

a new district for london carrying the legacy of the olympics

shedkm were invited to contribute residential designs to Balfour Beatty and Places for People’s bid for a new community at the Olympic Park, London.

Tasked with bringing the same energy, spirit and ambition to the design as the legacy of the 2012 London Olympics the consortium of designers produced a winning bid of various housing typologies, with a common thread and sense of place nurtured from understanding the existing adjacent community of Hackney Wick.

The new district for London will be delivered over a five-year period, creating much needed homes for Londoners and continuing the renewal and placemaking initiated by the games.

shedkm’s residential designs are set to evolve over the coming years and will include a mix of typology along with diversity in tenure.
