Sustainable technology has been at the heart of the development of this high rise residential scheme in a challenging urban context in the vicinity of the Lower Lea Valley and Canning Town Transport Interchange.

The regeneration of Rathbone Market consists of three phases, and when completed the landscape will provide a series of semi private podium gardens, a new market square, reworking of the A13 underpass and establishment of a new arrival space referred to as ‘Phoenix Place’ connected via the market square to Barking Road. The multilevel roof line provides further amenity terraces, semi private and private with biodiverse green roofs dedicated to enhancing local ecology.

Phase 1, Vermillion, was completed in September 2012 and saw the creation of a residents' garden featuring a sculpted water body that harvests rainwater and provides an integral part of the stormwater attenuation strategy, and a 4m high green wall which shields the garden from wind and traffic noise.

The Vermillion scheme was Highly Commended at the 2014 Landscape Institute Awards, and a Sustainable Water Industry Group (SWIG) award winner in recognition of its innovative water use and urban greening.

Phase 2, Aurelia (currently in construction) delivers the bulk of the public realm including the new market square, with Phase 3 due to commence early in 2015.
