Postmark residential development is part of the Mount Pleasant Masterplan in Islington, London, and forms an enclosure around the reconfigured Royal Mail sorting office facilities at Mount Pleasant.

White Ink were appointed by Taylor Wimpey Central London to develop the original concept design, by WilkinsonEyre and Allies and Morrison, to technical design and tender stage. Through optimisation of all apartment layouts White Ink have added value by improving accessibility and aligning the design with current Taylor Wimpey Central London standards.

Five separate blocks ranging from 4 – 11 storeys in height will provide 336 new homes of mixed tenure, ground floor retail units and an office building arranged around a new public square.

The apartment design has been developed in accordance with the relevant housing standards, regulations and design guides whilst resolving all the critical interfaces associated with forming a boundary around the Royal Mail’s working service yard.

A raised, community amenity space is created over the top of part of the Royal Mail’s operations and the remainder is covered with an extensive green roof planted with a flowering meadow, providing both acoustic separation and a visual amenity to residents.
