    • Urban Design Studio, Hackney Central LondonEdges and Massing •The street edge of mare street creates the continuity in the urban form •The morning lane , Dalston lane create weaker edge street edge orThe view of if the mare street lack of visual continuityView of the morning laneDalton lane Area Analysis and Site Strategy
    • Urban Design Studio, Hackney Central LondonEdge and Massing •The built bulky structures such as the Bus garage , Burberry factory and Tesco imparts visual monotony to urban form •However in terms Tesco there is trade-off functionality of the space to outside visual harmony . •The building heights vary considerably to give visual varietyArea Analysis and Site Strategy
    • Urban Design Studio, Hackney Central LondonUrban Grain •The built form of the hackney central loose urban grain •Although mare street represents the relatively tight urban grain. Narrow street in between the building .Area Analysis and Site Strategy
    • Urban Design Studio, Hackney Central LondonPublic RealmBuilt mass ,enclosure ,Feel of the space •The irregular left out spaces in green area remains underutilised •Lack of enclosure •The space in front of the church is out of scale and doesn’t form enclosure so fail to generate the activities Area Analysis and Site Strategy

Active frontages Semi active frontages Semi active frontagesArea Analysis and Site Strategy
    • Urban Design Studio, Hackney Central London In Nutshell •Quiet young area and ethnically diverse area •Hackney central has large catchment area with non permeable Urban form •Highly dense area with smaller dwelling unit size •The ‘ vacuum spaces ‘ garages and service shops along the railway line acts psychological hindrance for using the space •Concentration n of the activities at on stretch •Unclear street edges(inside the layout) no continuity of activities •Low perception of safety in the areas without active frontages (St. John church yard ) •Non permeable layout restrict movement or less choice of movement. • Unsatisfactory crossings . • Non Visibility of the station s •Bulky built masses Bus garage , Tesco , Burberry Factory made urban form monotones and non permeable at some places .Area Analysis and Site Strategy
    • Urban Design Studio, Hackney Central London Formulation of the Strategy Hypotheses •Creating the ‘Parallel Urban activities’ to ease out the pressure on Mare Street considering the larger catchment area . “Parallel ”here means complimenting activities and not competing •The designed strategy mainly aims at improving the permeability of urban form also tires to provide safe choice of routes residents and visitors. •Interlocking the north south development •Balance distribution and continuity of functions across the urban form . • Distribution of the buses over the time and space •Maximum Possible segregation of the pedestrian and vehicular traffic . •Active uses on ground floor and mixed use building preferably residential on upper floor to ensure activity 24/7 •Negotiation with the railway bridge. • To slow down the process of gentrification introduction of the affordable housing optionsArea Analysis and Site Strategy
