Gatti Routh Rhodes Architects with Capital Architecture for Bethnal Green Mission Church / Thornsett Group
Contract value: £7.2m 
GIA: 2,100m² 
Cost per m²: £3,429

This  project offers a contemporary place for worship as well as two community halls, café, community kitchen, food bank stores, offices, 14 private apartments and a vicarage.  Sale of the apartments provided the funding. The building is clad in a restrained palette of precast concrete grid with an infill of hand-laid brickwork. Changes in the window treatment and the integration of stained-glass windows is the only evidence of the church within. A very successful response to a complex brief.
