This contemporary apartment locates in an impressive historical brewery residential building between Whitechapel and the City.Site Location & Character
The apartment is situated to the south of Bellevue Place, which
forms part of the Stepney Green Conservation Area.
“Hidden away behind the Genesis Cinema and Wickham’s lopsided
department store is Bellevue Place. To get there, you walk up a side street
from the Mile End Rd where you discover a bright green door in an old wall
hung with ivy. Push this door and enter another world just as writer and
artist, Geoffrey Fletcher, did when he walked through the same doorway in
In The London Nobody Knows he wrote,“A green gate opening in the
wall leads to a totally unexpectedly corner of London, one that may well
disappear if Charrington’s, who own the property, ever decide to expand.
Bellevue Place is well named. It is a cul-de-sac with a paved pathway
leading to the far end, under a creeper-covered wall. The cottages are early
nineteenth century, and have true cottage gardens fenced with wooden rails,
pointed at the top. Here are unbelievably rural gardens, full of lilac, lupins
and delphiniums – all a minute’s walk from the Mile End Road.”
Bellevue Place was originally built as a crescent of cottages around a green
which served in the Victorian period as tea gardens. Charringtons built a
brewery on the site, cutting the terrace in half, constructing a wall round it
and using the cottages for their key workers. Enclosed on all sides, there is
a door in one wall that led directly into the brewery, which remains locked
today, now the brewery is gone and now where my apartment stands.
“Bellevue Place, unseen from the street and surrounded on four sides by
high walls, is a magical place where it truly does feel as if time has stood
still. The walls form a wind break, creating an atmosphere of warm still air in
the gardens. There is an innate quiet in this corner.”
(In Geoffrey Fletcher’s footsteps, 2010, by The Gentle Author)
The garden setting is arguably a principle part of the heritage of Bellevue
Place. Accessible only by foot through a single door from the street,
the setting cultivates an strong relationship between the house and its
occupants, with the leafy front and back gardens surrounded by high, plantcovered walls creating continuous views of greenery from every angle.
This intimate acquaintance between the terrace and the gardens forms
a key part of the design concept. The proposal is sensitive the fabric and
layout of the existing Grade II listed property, leaving the principle house
largely untouched with minor alterations to the interior. There are no
proposed changes to the front of the property, with those to the rear being
in-keeping with the massing, scale and materiality of the original terrace.
