woolwich catholic club



Woolwich, London

c. 7,800sq.m


Re-development of a low-rise 1970s structure to provide 65 apartments and a health centre in south-east London.

Plus Architecture were commissioned by a London-based developer to demolish an existing, abandoned Catholic club structure and provide a new high-density residential building in this newly thriving borough of the city.

The scheme nestles into a corner of a much larger masterplan centred on the Royal Artillery Barracks, and seeks to provide a sort of link between the tough urban location of the dual carriageway to the south and the newly planned linear park to the north, which links the Thames and the listed structures in the barracks campus.

The materials proposed were chosen to reflect the character and history of the location; brass metalwork throughout to honour the historical munitions foundry on the site; London stock brick to echo the immediate context, both new and old; and a larger register stone framing element which seeks to disaggregate the mass of the building into a more human scale.
