Teresa House

On a prominent corner along Mile End Road, an opportunity was seized to create a distinctive block to house and care for 17 young people with learning difficulties.

Bedsits form the upper floors, with shared communal facilities at ground floor level. The site is in a conservation area adjacent to a terrace of town houses which are listed.

The new building needed to be designed in a sensitive manner to respect the smaller scale of the adjacent houses, yet maximise the site potential.
