Heritage & Conservation

The site features historically significant buildings, including the six terraced Worship Street houses designed by renowned architect Philip Webb, in 1862. These Grade II* listed buildings were originally intended for craftsmen and their families, with workspaces and dwellings funded by Colonel Gillum. Modern alterations have concealed their charm, with unsympathetic extensions filling their rear yards and a move away from their original use as single dwelling houses.

Richard Griffiths Architects’ proposals will reveal and preserve the unique character of these buildings, respecting their historical context and their plan form. The proposals involve careful restoration, removal of modern extensions and the creation of a new residential mews to showcase these 19th Century houses. Elsewhere on the site, all the historic buildings are being retained, whether in their entirety or through adaptive reuse.

The online public consultation for Shoreditch Works has now closed.
