East London project secures £467k grant from National Lottery Heritage Fund

A project to convert grade II-listed former fire brigade accommodation in east London into studio space for the creative industries has received a funding boost.

Purcell’s plans for Alice Billings House in Stratford have been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £467,172 – on top of already-committed funding for the scheme from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, the London Borough of Newham and the Architectural Heritage Fund.
