Scheme was heavily opposed by locals

A project designed by David Adjaye for a site just a block from his successful Rivington Place gallery in Shoreditch has been given the go-ahead despite a ferocious local campaign to block the scheme.

Adjaye was appointed in 2015 to develop proposals to turn a derelict post-war warehouse at 118 Curtain Road into offices by adding three storeys.

Planning consultant CMA Planning confirmed the scheme had been given the all clear by the council earlier this week, saying it had "overcome noise concerns raised by neighbours" including Strongroom Studios founder Richard Boote.
