Barking Riverside Essex, UK

At 140 hectares, Barking Riverside is the UK’s largest residential regeneration scheme. Sheppard Robson has been commissioned to prepare the designs for the 45 hectare Stage 1 area, delivering the first 1,400 of 10,800 homes in two character areas - Buzzards Mouth and Ripple Gardens

The energy-efficient houses in Buzzards Mouth Courts range from traditionally laid-out terraces to innovative, linear houses wrapping around an intimate garden.

Some houses have back gardens leading directly into courtyards; others open onto welcoming home-zone streets with pedestrian priority. Frontages have been designed to create natural surveillance and care has been taken to make streetscapes welcoming. Houses have sufficient openings between blocks to allow access from different sides, to encourage the local community to access courtyards and for children to visit different play areas.
