Carpenters Estate is a 23-acre site next to Stratford Station, adjacent to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The proposed masterplan of Carpenters Estate will be one of London's largest estate regeneration programmes. The project will deliver over 2,000 new homes — with at least 50% at social rent levels — alongside new retail and commercial uses. We are advising on sustainability, including guiding the overall design, maximising high-grade reuse and recycling opportunities, and setting targets for waste management.

We completed pre-redevelopment audits across the estate, surveying 50 buildings to identify which ones could be retained, and what materials could be reused from those requiring demolition. The findings supported the outline planning application and, in addition to two tower blocks already earmarked for retention, James Riley Point and Lund Point, helped increase the total number of retained buildings in the masterplan.

Identifying materials for reuse is key to achieving the project’s circular economy objectives and we’ve set waste management targets in line with the London Plan, which requires 95% of waste materials to be reused or recycled.

The revitalised Carpenters Estate will offer much-needed new and modern homes at genuinely affordable rates. Developed through a process of extensive community consultation and co-design, proposals include 28,000m2 of commercial space for cafés, restaurants, shops, workshop space, a hotel, and a newly refurbished Building Crafts College.

Grønlikaia is a major, new waterfront transformation project in the heart of Oslo, Norway. As one of the last waterfront sites in the city, it is an opportunity to create an inclusive and diverse “fjord city”, aimed at a wide variety of Oslo’s population, including the underserved communities of the eastern parts of the city.

Londonon gathered a team of experts in sustainability, placemaking, new forms of living, circular and doughnut economy, landscape design, and waterfront development. The exemplary project is making the water more accessible and creating new public spaces, cultural institutions, active streetscapes, and exceptional architecture.

The proposal will accommodate all the inhabitants of the site, both above and below the water. It uses upcycled marine steel to create a low-carbon quay-front and new habitats for fish, which will help to maintain existing marine and land-based natural resources as a central tenet of the development. All new buildings are designed to create better ecological conditions, contributing to the much-needed restoration of marine life in the Oslo fjord.

Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2022
Lasnamäe, Tallinn, Estonia

Part of Tallinn’s 2022 Architecture Biennale, The Circular Block competition invited participants to consider Lasnamäe. As Tallinn’s most populous suburb, it is the site of a multi-layered design and research project
questioning established linear models of production and consumption, and proposing strategies that could shift the district towards integrated and socially responsive circular systems.

Designed by Londonon (Morris+Company, Mae, Haptic, Gort Scott, Coffey Architects, Turner Works) in collaboration with Neighbourhood and Skelly & Couch, ‘The Unfinished City’ considers all invited scales of enquiry and represents a comprehensive vision for a circular district, driven by empowered residents through adaptable structures of highly participatory governance and decision-making. We imagine a digitally-enabled ‘People’s Parliament’, with strong social connections fostered in the physical pursuit of growing, sharing and reuse. The activity is rooted in a productive hydraulic landscape and shared spaces constructed from repurposed materials and redundant building components.

Ultimately, the district, forever ‘unfinished’, sustains its own continual renewal and inspires and offers support to a wider movement of kindred projects. The Unfinished City was exhibited at the 2022 Tallinn Architecture Biennale and awarded an honourable mention by the competition judges.
