Grzywinski+Pons has created a multipurpose building in a historic area of London to bring new life to an urban infill site.
The project is a new 13-storey building located in the Aldgate East neighbourhood of London, comprising 103 compact apartments, a mezzanine co-working space, a coffee shop, meeting rooms and a concept store. Grzywinski+Pons designed the building from the ground up as well as all of the interiors and much of the furniture.
The base of the building is clad in rusticated, nickel finished metal panels, above which warm grey hand-laid water struck brick and other transitional detailing imbue the already richly textured skin with even more depth. The crown of the building was designed to be equally proportionate to the base and is clad completely in glass block to further emphasise the texture, gravity and permanence of the structure.
