London-based architects Metropolitan Workshop completed this stunning tower of 89 residences, of which 53 are affordable Pocket homes. The site was constrained severely, and the tower was constructed using prefabricated units greatly speeding up the construction. The green ceramic panels were developed with input from the artist Louise Rutt and change colour beautifully in different lighting conditions.
