Bromley-by-Bow is currently a major focus for regeneration in the Lea Valley, but the area has been fragmented by railtrack, the A12, and the barrier of the Lea Navigation. 5th Studio’s recent work in this territory has entailed two different roles, both of which operate between the scale of infrastructure and urban design – developing strategies which can contribute to the repair of this fragmentation and help to create a coherent urban realm.

The first, working as Challenge Architect to Capita Symonds, concerned the upgrading and better integration of Bromley-by-Bow tube station – working to ensure that investment in the station is directed to unlock local regeneration objectives, including the restoration of a local centre and strong public realm in an area blighted by the A12 urban motorway.

5th Studio were subsequently commissioned to lead a multi-disciplinary team to undertake a related study of the adjacent development sites. This study culminates in an integrated development framework and accessibility strategy. These ‘practical solutions’ – realisable, costed proposals for incremental improvements to connectivity and the public realm – provide a clear plan of action for public bodies and developers towards the transformation of a district currently blighted by its isolation.
