East Ham CSCL in Taschen's 100 Contemporary Brick Buildings

The East Ham Customer Service Centre + Library features in Taschen's new book '100 Contemporary Brick Buildings'. We're very proud of this building and its use of bricks and are honoured to be included in this publication. An excerpt from the book:

The conservation area of the Town Hall includes a number of Edwardian Grade II brick and terracotta buildings. This prompted the architects to use two tones of hand-thrown Leicestershire red bricks. Vertical brick ribbing was used on the external facade. The project won the 2014 Brick Development Association Award for the Best Public Building. The Award jury stated, the 'Customer Service Centre + Library is a well-designed building which sits well in its immediate context and provides a valuable resource for its neighborhood. The quality and use of brick detailing is high and consistent throughout and its solid structure is beautifully put together and well executed.
