London Borough of Havering

Manor Road is a residential development in the heart of Romford Market Town, East London, offering 80 apartment units, with 35% affordable.

The historic Romford Market Town is an inspiration to the podium deck courtyard design, where the idea of market stalls is recreated by the geometrical alignment of planters.

The wider objective of the courtyard design is to involve the local residents in social gardening activities within their own communal 'plaza'.
