The Royal Institute of British Architects has highlighted that over half of new homes built today are not big enough to meet the needs of the people who buy them. According to RIBA many lack the space to live comfortably, and even miss the space to store everyday essentials such as a vacuum cleaner.¹ East Thames has put this at the forefront of design at their Prospect East development in Stratford. Offering a range of apartments, maisonettes and townhouses, the properties are well designed to be home to the entire family, and all of their belongings
A site steeped in London history, Prospect East was once home to one of the largest rail works in Britain, becoming one of London’s central transport hubs. Continuing to make history, Prospect East is the first phase of a much larger plan in Stratford. Featuring a range of different properties from one bedroom apartments to four bedroom townhouses with open green spaces and landscaped gardens scattered throughout, an entirely new urban community is being created by East Thames.
Tony Harker, East Thames’ Director of Sales & Marketing comments, “With an increasing number of savvy house hunters looking further than just a property’s appearance, Prospect East provides homes with both elegant interiors and practicality built into the design. Ample storage space provides the opportunity for families to enjoy their home, without it feeling cluttered. These design features are essential for inner-city living, and are what sets Prospect East aside from the rest.”
With room for everything and everyone, the maisonettes at Pacific Building at Prospect East offer an astonishing amount of storage space. As soon as you enter the home, the entrance hall has storage for two bicycles and another three large storage units. Continuing the thoughtful design, upstairs offers an extra three large storage units, ensuring that families are suitably catered for throughout the property.
The kitchen/dining space at The Pacific Building maisonettes is open-plan, creating the perfect area to entertain guests or cook for the entire family. The spacious living area is the prime place to relax with large double doors opening out on to the back garden, flooding the interior with natural light. Upstairs boasts three bedrooms, with the master bedroom having access to an en-suite. The larger family bathroom provides a calm space to unwind and caters to the entire household.
Built to the high standard which East Thames is known for, kitchens feature elegant touches such as soft closing doors, stone work surfaces and a range of high quality integrated appliances. Bathrooms and en-suites boast grey ceramic tiles, crystal white sanitary-ware and recessed down lighters to add a contemporary theme to the space.
