Shoreditch Village

Shoreditch Village, London

A 150,000 sq ft mixed-use and public realm scheme at the heart of London’s creative quarter.

On one of London's most complex sites, Shoreditch Village creates a significant new public space which restores lost neighbourhood connections and enhances the area as one of London’s key destinations with a vibrant mix of public, retail, café, restaurant, residential and commercial space. We have worked closely with the London Borough of Hackney, for whom it is an opportunity to repair a damaged part of the city.

The key element of the Shoreditch Village masterplan is transforming the space around the viaduct into a positive public space, enlivened by a new street market of semi-permanent stalls offering an eclectic range of food. This market is supported by a series of flexible retail spaces, targeted at unusual brands focused towards the “on-trend” and aspirational culture of Shoreditch.

New contemporary buildings around the public space will reflect the unique character of Shoreditch, creating a sense of place appropriate to the local context. Shoreditch Village imaginatively applies a variety of materials typical of the local area and draws upon Shoreditch's lively and interesting roofscape, through planted rooftop gardens and terraces with views of the bustling streets below.

“EllisMiller took up the challenges of Shoreditch Village with great skill and have produced an outstanding scheme. Our team engaged well with the local community and other stakeholders, and addressed the many challenges of this unusual site with imagination. Thanks to EllisMiller’s design skill, the scheme encapsulates Shoreditch’s unique character and will provide a real destination for people to live, work, shop, eat or simply enjoy.” Dominic White, Lirastar (Client)
