Bethnal Green rebuild praised for improving the East End
A set of modernised blocks on an East End housing estate have won an award for vastly improving the area.
The copper-fronted homes in Claredale Street, Bethnal Green won architects Karakusevic Carson a Civic Trust Award earlier this month.
Situated between Hackney Road and Bethnal Green Road, the blocks include 77 mixed-tenure properties.
Both apartments and terraced houses are cleverly incorporated in the modern structure.
When they were completed in November, planning chiefs at the Greater London Authority described the designs as “one of the best examples of estate regeneration”.

The block is part of the Mansford Estates, which houses 700 residents in a deprived part of Tower Hamlets.
