EBBA have developed an ambitious building on a unique urban plot in London, providing new retail units on the ground floor with housing above. The stepped form reflects the character of the adjacent church, as well as addressing the tight constraints set by the neighbouring properties. Gradation in the brickwork and differing textures reinforce the stepping of the building as it rises to create a sense of scale that is appropriate to the site at street level. Internally the apartments above gain access to private amenity due to the stepping of the form in plan, as well as double and triple aspects ensuring good quality internal environments for all occupants.
