A residential led development in the space between the city and the east end
Mildmay is a residential development of private and social housing and incorporates the Shoreditch Tabernacle Baptist Church and The Mildmay Mission Hospital.
Located close to the Shoreditch Triangle on land off Hackney Road, near the Boundary Estate and St Leonard’s Church it is in the heart of Shoreditch. We developed the site masterplan through extensive community consultation, working with Matthew Lloyd Architects to realise the detailed design and delivery of the scheme.
united in difference
The scheme is made up of seven individual blocks which are sculpted to respond to the surrounding buildings, streets and open spaces. The raking forms of the scheme lend a strong character to this part of the Hackney Road Conservation Area.
A careful analysis of brick colours was carried out across the neighbourhood, yielding a range of six contrasting and complementary tones for each of the buildings.
The blocks are unified by a common language of ground floor front doors, balconies and bay windows. Anchored around the listed Tab Centre community building, the design restores historic links across the site through new pedestrian-oriented public realm and outdoor amenity space.
A domestic approach to care
Mildmay Mission Hospital provides holistic patient-centred care for adults with physical, cognitive and psychosocial difficulties associated with living with HIV.
Their aim is to provide positive opportunities to promote independence, build confidence and strengthen abilities. The building takes the design principles of a care home: domestic in character and scale to avoid the institutionalization and stigmatisation of those being treated for HIV/AIDS.
