Other Information

  • Skyhouse is David Marks and Julia Barfield's answer to the housing shortage in the UK designed to provide affordable housing for all.
  • The lack of a willing developer to put money up and barely make a penny has seen the project face set-back after set back.
  • Original plans called for a 72 floor tower of 305m but this was cut back due to economic considerations.
  • One plan for Skyhouse was to build them on the Greenwich Peninsula in parkland linking every Skyhouse together with tramlines and NO roads.
