Milieu Consult undertook the design of the M&E Services for a multi-use civic building by designed by Earle Architects.
Designed to be low impact and sustainable, the building is covered by earth, with a roof sloping from the ground to the terrace above the cafe. The roof will catch rainwater which will be used to maintain the rooftop garden.
The cafe will feature 180-degree views of Shoreditch Park and extensive outdoor seating. A roof light will provide natural light, and kitchen extract ventilation will be via a rotating cowl, through a toughened glass roof.
