Vine Court

A new build residential development situated in the centre of Tower Hamlets, this scheme aims to provide a building that respects the history and the nature of the site, whilst also providing accommodation in response to the needs of the area.

The built form is realized as a flat brick façade with a number of carved out spaces and setbacks. In reference to the original Victorian terrace typology the site has the top floor stepped back to address the ‘enclosed nature of the surroundings. While adopting traditional Victorian proportions the design also allows the street a large amount of sunlight, dual aspect apartments and plenty of amenity space.

The roof has been conceived as the fifth elevation, a sculptural faceted intervention that has been designed to be viewed from the surrounding tall buildings, providing a visually interesting solution to the overlooking from Tower House as well as the stepping back to lighten the overall mass of the roof.
