Ellis Miller wins planning for £1.5m Hackney mixed-use scheme

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Ellis Miller has been given the go-ahead for a mixed use scheme next to Hackney’s Ridley Road Market

The Hackney-based practice’s 627m² scheme includes a café, retail space, and residential accommodation.

The £1.5million building is clad in two different colours of brick – a dark engineering brick provides a plinth at the ground floor while the upper floors are clad in a buff brick reflecting the surrounding London stock.

Construction is expected to start on site in 2015, with the scheme set to complete in 2016.

The architect’s view

‘Great care has been taken to produce proposals for a high quality and distinctive, modern addition to Ridley Road. The proposals make the most of a tight urban site to create a contextual building.

‘The dark engineering brick at ground floor provides a robust ‘plinth’ to the building, whereas the upper storeys are constructed from a buff brick that reflects the surrounding yellow London stock brick. In contrast to the rough texture of the brickwork, the top two floors are predominantly glazed, creating a lighter, set-back structure at the higher levels. The material palette distinguishes different uses and assists in breaking down the mass of the building.’
