Located in upper Clapton, the residential building for the Orthodox Jewish Community is made up of market and affordable residential and will provide additional supporting community spaces.

The building form is conceived as an embedded rock which has been cleaved apart to form a central gathering place and provide views to the River Lea and Hackney marshes beyond.

The idea will be carried through to the facades which will be comprised of layers of brickwork in a mixture of bonds to provide visual texture.
