Parritt Leng submits rescue plans for derelict Hoxton cinema

[First look] Parritt Leng has submitted plans worth £5 million to resurrect a derelict cinema in Hoxton, east London

Featuring three screens and 19 apartments, the project replaces a scheme by Waugh Thistleton Architects approved in 2009.

The 2,419m² project on 55 Pitfield Street would restore a working cinema to the site for the first time in almost half a century.

The project is designed to express the ‘strong silhouette’ of the classical façade which is ‘pronounced against a modern black brick backdrop of rational proportions’, according to Parritt Leng.
