Curtain Road development, east London by Toh Shimazaki Architecture
[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Toh Shimazaki Architecture has won planning permission for this 4,366m², eight-storey mixed-use project in east London
The ground floor and basement will serve as retail and restaurant space, while the upper seven floors are to be office and residential. Accommodation will be in the form of eight penthouse apartments with private balconies, set back from the busy road below.
The front facade is waved and uses glass bricks, a nod to the old brick warehouses that are prevalent in the conservation areas surrounding the site. On-site renewable energy generation contributed to achieve in excess of 20 per cent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
