A three-storey block of 18 two-bedroom flats and six onebedroom flats is set back above a plinth of retail units, following the dominant urban form this side of Dalston Lane.

A planted semi-enclosed rear courtyard provides servicing areas to the shops and car-parking.

North-facing bedrooms are expressed in the punched facade to Dalston Lane, with south-facing living and eating spaces arranged along a glazed elevation opening on to deep, planted, steel-frame and mesh balconies. The low-level street elevation comprises glass and steel-framed retail frontages contained at each end by deep-blue glazed-brick flank walls.

Folds in the brickwork form entrance points to the flats.

The high-level Dalston Lane elevation is rendered, with the grid of expansion joints coloured in a chequerboard pattern and punctuated by generous deep-set windows.

This scheme is to be built under a D&B contract to which AHMM will be novated. Currently out to tender, the scheme is due on site this spring.
