FATs winning scheme for the Brookes Road High Rise Housing Competition in 2003, proposed the comprehensive refurbishment and extension of an existing high-rise housing block. The London Borough of Newham are procuring the 6 million GBP building works through a PPC2000 partnering agreement, for which Fat are the lead consultants. The design proposes apartments of various sizes and configurations, with an emphasis on family homes. Flexibility of internal planning is maximised through an innovative building services strategy. Features such as personalised external balconies address the need to fundamentally change the perception of high-rise housing.
