Mildmay Regeneration, Shoreditch


LOCATION: Shoreditch, East London
TYPE: Housing Development
SIZE: 6 no. 4-8 storey residential city blocks
STAGE: Completed April 2017

Jonathan was project architect on 3 of 6 residential blocks for the Mildlay Regeneration project in east London. Mildmay is a mixed use project, combining private and social residential units, a church, a specialist hospital and commercial space.

Anchored around the listed Tab Centre community building, the design re-establishes the tight urban grain and restores the permeability of historic links across the site through new pedestrian-oriented public realm and outdoor amenity space.

The site comprises six individual blocks which are sculpted to respond to surrounding buildings, streets and open spaces. The dramatic raking forms of the scheme provide a strong character to this part of the Hackney Road Conservation Area. Each of the individual blocks is articulated with a different brick type and colour whilst collectively unified by a common language of architectural details, pitching roofscapes, ground floor front doors, balconies and bay windows.
