This residential development designed by CJCT Studios is located within the Greenwich Peninsula and positioned on a dramatic site overlooking the Thames riverside. The scheme comprises of total of 223 new apartments in 3 buildings, including a 24 storey tower, arranged around a shared landscaped courtyard. These will include studio units and one, two and three bedroom units – 56% of which will be affordable.
The tower has a tripartite composition defined by an elegant white textured frame that provides shadow and depth to the façade. A considered pattern of full height windows and metallic cladding that is held within the elegant frame provides a richness of texture and warm tones. Balconies and glazing to principal living spaces are positioned at the corners to maximise dual aspect views.
This riverside plot sits within the overall Phase 2 development for the peninsula, with architects DSDHA, Pilbrow and Partners and Landscape Architects Turkington Martin working on the adjoining plots. The surrounding public realm, has been considered holistically with this team, in order to create a coherent neighbourhood at the heart of Peninsula Riverside, with its own distinct identity, sense of place and destination.
