Judges’ comments: Part of a larger development, this mixed-tenure project was described as a ‘bold and successful attempt to import a continental housing model into London’s East End and to re-interpret it in both the context of a tough urban environment and for a largely Bangladeshi community with its particular cultural and social constraints’. The scheme features dark brown sculpted concrete panels and ‘strident’ yellow panels.

The project marks S333’s debut in the UK and was reviewed in the AJ in June last year (AJ 12.06.08).
