Earlsfield | London
24 apartments and office space
The concept for the design of this building was to create a contemporary twist on traditional industrial architecture; to respond to the past history of the site, the buildings that form part of the character of the Wandle Trail, and those that are integrated within the history of London’s industrial past.
The arrangement of ‘random’ roof pitches and dominant brick facades is reminiscent of industrial riverside buildings. It has been executed in a way however that is slightly uncharacteristic of the traditional repetition of industrial architecture. The facades are irregularly playful and respond to the massing.
The form and arrangment of the building plan was worked hard to deliver the quantum of development and replacement commercial floor space.
