Tower Hamlets, London, UK
Orchard Wharf is a progression in our hybrid design approach that reactivates a long idle wharf on the north bank of the Thames opposite Greenwich Peninsula
A bold and challenging scheme driven by our client Regal London we have created an agile and river fed industrial space of 80,000sqft, 10m clear heights, up to 22m clear spans and integrated it with six residential towers around the edges on this landmark site.
“The vision is about an exemplar mixed-use scheme, when we realised this site would work for a last mile logistics facility, that was the light bulb moment”
The large industrial roof and canopy over the river loading zone creates an inspiring and multi-use garden for the residents with spectacular views over the river and towards the 02 Centre Dome.
We were invited to join the team as they moved towards a hybrid approach, bringing our market leading skills and experience for blending industrial with residential, along with public realm as the binding element at street level.
The project is a collaboration with JTP on the residential parts.
