An unrealised residential project involving the redevelopment of an inner city industrial site to provide housing for sale.

The design retained sections of the flank walls of existing industrial structures to take advantage of the footprint, thereby enabling a high density development without exceeding three storeys in height.

Dwellings of varying types and sizes are arranged around a landscaped central court overlooked by all of the flats and houses providing a high level of security.

Essex Mews is typical of the tight urban sites with which the practice is often involved in East End redevelopments.
