Gort Scott showcases London starter homes

Gort Scott's Gainsford Road development in Walthamstow, designed for Pocket Living

Pocket Living project was ‘inspired’ by William Morris School and local Warner homes

A Gort Scott-designed housing development in north-east London has won plaudits from client Pocket Living for the way it has integrated into the local streetscape.

The practice’s Gainsford Road scheme in Walthamstow delivers 45 one-bedroom homes in a four-storey building on the site of a former school to the north of the area’s famous market.

Gort Scott said the building’s T-shaped footprint stepped down to better integrate with neighbouring two-storey Warner terrace homes.
