Frampton Arms & Lyttleton House, Well Street, Hackney E9

London Borough of Hackney
Farrer Huxley Associates specified metroSTOR PBL & PBM Bin Storage Units and PCM Cycle Storage Units within the external landscape of two new apartment buildings, with the pre-designed units saving design time for the architects, and ameliorating procurement and construction processes for the contractors.
Constructed on underused land within the Frampton Park estate, the two buildings will contribute 45 new homes to London Borough of Hackney’s ambitious plan to build 2000 new homes between 2018-2022. In addition the developments both provide newly landscaped external spaces – a community courtyard for Frampton and a landscaped streetscape for Lyttleton – which benefit residents of nearby existing properties as well as the new homes.
The new properties are served by communal refuse and recycling bins (including separate food waste) stored externally at safe distances from the building, using metroSTOR PBM and PBL Bin Storage Units, giving opportunities for recycling that are not offered by traditional bin chutes. metroSTOR PCM Cycle Storage Units provide secure, heavy-duty storage for 50 bicycles across the two sites.
All the storage units have tough galvanised steel frames, galvanised steel roofs, and are finished with sustainably sourced iroko hardwood, giving a consistent look across all the stores. Streetspace provided comprehensive CAD drawings for the units, enabling the architects and contractors to discharge planning conditions relating to external storage without causing delay to the project programme.
