City Quarter, E1 London, UK

City Quarter is the first phase of Sheppard Robson’s masterplan for Goodmans Fields. It comprises 294 residential units, ranging from new-build social housing to spacious luxury apartments within a converted listed building, Sugar House.

The five new buildings, ranging from five to eight storeys, are arranged to create three dynamic external spaces: avenue, courtyard, and lagoon, over which timber walkways provide access to the principal entrances. New buildings are clad in white-glazed terracotta, with ‘folded’ zinc-clad elements forming a dramatic flank wall and generous roof overhangs. Each unit benefits from full-height windows and cantilevered balconies with frameless glass balustrades. The converted listed building offers generous storey heights and unusual original fabric, creating 42 unique apartments, for the higher-end market.
