- Updated Inspiration
83 apartments are included in the Mapleton Crescent building, designed by Metropolitan Workshop in the center of the city of Wandsworth. This project is the perfect example of modular, innovative and accessible housing for singles and couples.
The residential tower, with 27 floors, offers common services that stand out for their quality, such as rooftop gardens, shared balconies and a terrace by the river, which contribute to social and community interaction, something difficult to achieve in this kind of urban buildings.
The project has been developed along with Pocket Living, a company that aims to help young people with low incomes to acquire their first home, offering apartments with a price that is 20% lower than their market value.
