Grapes

The Grapes is a Public House located on Narrow Street, Limehouse in the Docklands, London. Apparently a regular haunt of Charles Dickens at one point, it is very cozy pub with both traditional ales on tap and a renowned fish restaurant, that has two very different faces. One side of the building has a very traditional frontage onto the street, which features the usual frosted windows, hanging plant baskets, etc… At the rear however it faces onto the Thames, which it embraces much more lovingly with mooring posts and balconies at two levels from its bar and restaurant at first floor. The relationships which this small structure has with both approaches will be investigated further in an extremely detailed section at 1:20 which is being produced at present as part of a team of four produced drawing package of exploratory investigations of the pub.

This will form part of the first section of investigations into Public House.
