Phase 2 of Canning Town’s Rathbone Market redevelopment comprises 165 homes, 12,000 sqft retail space, a community building and two public squares, one forms the centre piece and permanent home for Rathbone Market, and the other a landscaped entrance to the existing subway beneath the Newham Way. CZWG Architects chose to use Lignacite’s Roman Brick, a much tougher cladding material of polished concrete blockwork for the ground floor areas. The Roman Brick provided inherent strength and a smooth tactile surface at the point at which people would come into close contact with the building.
