Haworth Tompkins are working with Taylor Wimpey and the London Legacy Development Corporation on their Chobham Manor development, one of the first projects to be developed as part of the Olympic Legacy. Overlooking the new Queen Elizabeth Park adjacent to the Velodrome, the design is inspired by precedents of London park side residential developments and is conceived as a series of articulated Mansion Blocks forming a continuous terrace that follows the edge of the site. The Mansion Block typology provides a primary rhythm to the site whilst a secondary rhythm of balconies and bay windows expresses the scale of the individual unit. A simple palette of materials is used throughout and generous balconies to the flats at the upper levels provide every unit with outdoor space with views over the park.
