Masterplan for the town centre of London Borough, Barking, provides 200 flats in two new parallel blocks. They are built above the refurbished library which is to become a child and adult education facility fronted by a new public square designed by Muf. Its roof is the shared private garden between the blocks. Elevations have a distinctive aluminium skin with coloured glass mosaic balconies that suggest the varying programme.
