|:||St Mary of Eton is a Grade II* listed church built for the Eton College Mission in the late 19th century. The development involves the creation of 3 new buildings, including 31 residential units ranging from 1bed to 4bed flats, as well as a new church centre, community facilities and extensive re-landscaping. The site comprises affordable housing, private housing, church, community and commercial use. The new buildings frame and strengthen the profile of the church; the treatment of the facades references the care and detailing of the historic buildings. Light blue glazed bricks shine in the daylight, contrasting with the red brick, and the addition of white bricks further lightens the façade. On the corners of the new buildings, the subtle diamond pattern folds around like cloth. Composed to emphasize a solid, sculpted quality, the facades impart to the new buildings a sense of permanence and belonging.|
