GATTI ROUTH RHODES
Bethnal Green Mission Church
Bethnal Green, East London, UK
Bethnal Green Mission Church represents Gatti Routh Rhodes’ ongoing interest in how to best leverage limited resources to create sustainable buildings imbued both with a deep sense of community and a rich materiality.
The building includes a church, community halls, a café, a foodbank, offices and apartments.
The pale brick facade, is framed by precast light concrete elements whilst the structure is a combination of concrete and cross laminated timber. The gates and the stained glass express the building’s civic use and pick up on the exposed concrete coffers spanning the church space.
