Bethnal Green Mission Church
Gatti Routh Rhodes were appointed by Bethnal Green Mission Church in 2014, in partnership with Thornsett Group. Our brief was to design a new church and community centre, funded by residential units in a key conservation area - the site is diagonally opposite John Soane's St John on Bethnal Green.
The concrete and CLT scheme comprises a double height church to the ground and first floors, community facilities in a well-lit basement, charity and co-working spaces on the first floor and key worker and private residential accommodation above. The building opened in October 2018.
