Designed by and for Theis and Khan, the scheme is a highly contemporary, yet contextual building that maximises accommodation for both commercial and residential units at a tight site in a popular part of East London. It provides several lettable units – making the scheme viable from the start – and is an architects office and family home at its top complete with a green roof, providing stunning views of the city.
The scheme maximises space and light by climbing vertically in distinct phases over five floors, introducing wide expanses of flush-fixed glazing and a contemporary smooth finish that alternates with rough and robust edges at the ground that respond to its industrial origins and local setting.
The internally exposed concrete structure acts as a thermal store, combined with a highly insulated envelope and natural ventilation. Solar panels supplement hot water provision.
