CHAMBERS WHARF, London, 2016, Simpson Haugh
Architectural photography of Chambers Wharf:

Simpson Haugh's proposals—including retail space, 407 residential apartments,189 affordable apartments, basement parking—respond to the site’s remarkable aspect and acknowledge its significance as a landmark at the point on the riverside where the original warehouses end and the building scale reduces. On a cluster of three sites, the design comprises a composition of crystalline forms that restore the urban grid and re-establish local routes with the river. The buildings respond to the stunning views up-stream toward Tower Bridge and downstream to Canary Wharf. Lined with entrances and animated frontages, the development reinforces Chambers Street as a generous and coherent public thoroughfare. Open spaces form to capture private gardens and define a public realm of the highest quality along the river. The sparkle façade made from folded translucent metallic planes contrast with the orthogonal volumes within. Residential development were also designed with a Level 4 Code for Sustainable Homes rating target in mind. (All images copyright Simon Kennedy, London Architectural Photographer)
