Chris Dyson Architects part of Truman Brewery Team

Chris Dyson Architects is delighted to be part of the team working on the creative renewal and reuse of parts of the Truman Brewery site on Brick Lane, East London. The project is currently at neighbourhood consultation stage.

The site has been part of the vibrant Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Banglatown neighbourhood for over 350 years – in 1873, it was the largest brewery in the world. Today’s plans mark a significant milestone in its evolution. Chris Dyson Architects is one of an exciting team of firms working across seven development plots within the Truman Brewery estate.

Plans aim to build on the site’s success as a creative and cultural commercial hub, and to create more of the same, in a sustainable way, so that it continues to be a place for local workers and residents to work in, live in, visit and enjoy. The project, led by development manager Grow Places and the Truman Brewery, aims to preserve and enhance the area’s unique character, as they write: “We believe that the Truman Brewery is a unique place in a special neighbourhood. We want to build on the characteristics and heritage of the site, and to evolve it as a place which is of the area and which will be valued and enjoyed for generations to come.”

Neighbourhood consultation is a key part of this process, providing an opportunity for the local community to actively participate in shaping the plans from inception. Read more about plans here:
