The Otto is part of the Tiger Way project that we designed from concept in 2014 delivering through to completion in 2019 in collaboration with Hawkins\Brown, London Newcastle & McLaren Construction.
The Otto is a collection of 89, one, two and three bedroom apartments and duplexes adjacent to the open spaces of Hackney Downs. High quality residential accommodation with multi-level private terraces and larger fourth floor residents’ private roof garden harnesses some of the best views over Hackney Downs.
The landscape challenge was to create a high-quality residential amenity space on a constrained site with multiple stakeholders. Linking the two architectural pavilions, the residents’ private roof garden has been created to offer all residents an additional space to enjoy. Relaxed timber seating, a children’s area and sensitive planting designs to ensure interest throughout the seasons.
Tiger Way achieved BREEAM Outstanding at design stage and in 2018 won a BREEAM award for the best Public project at design stage.
