location London
function housing
contributed by davidb

A mixed use development sitting on the South bank of the Thames immediately adjacent to Foster & Partners' offices. Eleven storeys high, the upper floors contain private apartments, varying in size from one to four bedrooms, arranged around four vertical circulation cores. A typical floor holds approximately 27 units. The top floors contain duplex apartments, nestled under the roof. In plan the footprint of the scheme is an asymmetrical crescent, forming a piazza between its arms. The riverside elevation is dominated by a continuous, sinuous line of extended floor plates, forming balconies, finished with glass balustrades. Set back from this edge, is the faceted line of glazing. In contrast the outer fašade is one sweeping partial torus, or two dimensional curve, of aluminium tubes, the lines of which are disturbed by openings for windows and balconies. This elevation seems to rest on dramatic double height "vee" shaped columns. The whole project is executed with typical F&P panache.

How to get there? The nearest tube station is Sloane Square (Circle and District Lines) but this is quite a walk away. Bus numbers 19, 49, 239, 319 and 345 all pass the site.
