MIXED USE/GREAT EASTERN QUAYS
Workspace and leisure destination in the Royal Albert Docks
The Great Eastern Quays Masterplan, designed by Maccreanor Lavington, provides a new workspace and leisure destination wrapped around the impounding dock and historic pump house. This location terminates the important east-west route along the northern side of the Royal Docks and connects to the capital ring route around London. The spaces are designed with flexibility in mind to accommodate a range of users such as a cafe or restaurant, small start up businesses and facilities to support leisure uses on the docks. The work and leisure uses provided in the Great Eastern Quays masterplan complement the retail and community uses provided in the new local Centre in Gallions Quarter.

MIXED USE/BREAM STREET FISH ISLAND
Mixed-use workspace hub close to the Olympic Village
The competition project by Maccreanor Lavington for the re-development of a brownfield site on the River Lee Navigation proposed a new commercial hub lining the edge of the site creating an active streetscape and open communal yard space facing the waterfront and Olympic village. The proposal sought to give back waterfront space for public use and create a strong business identity reminiscent of the old factory buildings that characterise this part of London. The upper levels offered dual aspect residential units with views across the Olympic Village.
