Story

This prominent corner site in east London will provide nearly 30 new homes, a café, art gallery and co-working space, and a conferencing centre.

Working with a prominent London church, DLG were commissioned to develop proposals for the comprehensive redevelopment of this important site within a conservation area in east London.

The triangular form of the site gives an opportunity for 100% dual-aspect units arranged efficiently around a single core, and a mass that steps away from the sensitive nearby gardens to address the prominent transport interchange to the corner.

Contemporary detailing references the former ecclesiastical buildings on the site, including arched brickwork and feature fenestration.
