This unusual site must straddle two difficult conditions: facing the end of rear gardens to one side and a high  street on the other. We have created a design that  is tall enough to create high street  presence  yet balances it with  the rear gardens to prevent extensive overshadowing.  Conceptually, the rear gardens  'drape' over the new building, represented by green walls and green roofs. The repeated rhythm of the upper floor  breaks down the mass of the facade whilst creating a series of terraces and angled roof lines. Currently in planning with LB Hackney.
