Architectural Photography of Chambers Wharf by SimpsonHaugh Architects

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London. 

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. Residential development were also designed with a Level 4 Code for Sustainable Homes rating target in mind.
