Building London Planning Award 2022

We are honoured to have won the Building London Planning Award 2022 in the category of Best Place to Live with Goodluck Hope.

Goodluck Hope will deliver 804 high quality new homes ranging from studios to four-bedroom town houses, spread over 16 buildings ranging from 4 to 30 storeys at the heart of Orchard Dry Dock.

The footprint of the historic Grade II Listed graving dock, overlooking the River Thames, will be surrounded by small offices, studios, shops, restaurants and residents’ facilities at ground floor with apartments looking over from above. The variety of housing typologies of the scheme will encourage mixed and diverse communities with different daily routines to activate new streets, creating a strong sense of neighbourhood.

The landscape and public realm are inspired by the historical context and the industrial yard has been reinterpreted into flexible spaces hosting moveable objects ranging from containerised planting, furniture, artwork and historical maritime objects.

These Awards, organised by BusinessLDN in partnership with the Mayor of London, celebrate and champion outstanding town planning and creative development from across London’s built environment sector.
