A DESIGN-LED DEVELOPMENT
Dane’s Yard is the creation of three architecture practices. Masterplanner ARC-ML, design architect Waugh Thistleton Architects, and landscape architect Planit-IE. This team refurbished old warehouse buildings in this Conservation Area, combining them with contemporary extensions using modern building techniques to make sustainable and practical working environments for today’s businesses. They also preserved the site’s layout, retaining old yards and alleyways to keep the distinctive character of this old industrial area.
A PLACE WITH CHARACTER
The masterplan for the development respects the site’s heritage as a historic place of innovation and manufacture in London's east end. The built form of Dane's Yard incorporates reclaimed buildings and salvaged materials in an arrangement which preserves the small yards and alleyways which once characterised the site.
