For Ale Lovers: The Draft Building on Sterling Road


Sterling Road’s rapid transformation from industrial dust bowl to thriving hub continues with the newest brewery to tempt passerby

Sterling Road’s newest arrival balances the identities of a neighbourhood transitioning from industrial to dining destination. Junction brewers Indie Ale House will take over the first two storeys of Castlepoint Greybrook Sterling’s Draft Building, while the upper storey will be flex office spaces. The structure, devised by SvN Architects + Planners, working with CM PECK, fuses rugged and sleek elements: a full-height glazed wall at street level, for instance, offers a peek at brewers tending to the shiny fermentation tanks within.
