Chris Dyson completes East End Almshouse overhaul


[First look + plans] Chris Dyson Architects has overhauled a Grade I-listed former Almshouse in London’s East End

The cottage at Trinity Green, designed by William Ogbourne in the Seventeenth Century, has been restored and updated by the locally based practice.

The cottage was originally one of 28 almshouses specially for use by former mariners.

‘Trinity Almshouses, 27, Mile End Rd., E.1. For master mariners and widows and spinster daughters of master mariners of not less than sixty years of age. The former must have served at least fifteen years in the Mercantile Marine of the United Kingdom, during not less than four years of which they must have commanded a sailing vessel of not less than 200 tons, or a steam vessel of not more than 550 tons; and the widows and spinsters must produce certificates of their late husbands’ or fathers’ services whilst masters, and of marriage, birth, good character, etc. Presentations rest in the hands of the Elder Brethren of the Trinity House. The income is derived from invested funds and estates. Application should be made to the Secretary, Trinity House, E.C.3.’
