LONDON | 30 Marsh Wall | 205m | 57 fl | Demo

EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN

The proposals are designed by 21st Architecture, a leading London-based practice with years of experience in creating inspiring new buildings.

This unique, tapered and slender structure will be a stunning addition to the area’s architecture and enhance the Isle of Dogs’ skyline.

The new homes, offices and retail space will feature the latest green technology helping to keep the building’s carbon footprint down and limiting the use of resources.

The building will feature:
  • A combined heat and power boiler to deliver hot water and electricity throughout the development
  • Ventilated winter gardens providing heat in the winter and cooling fresh air in the summer
  • Low use water fittings throughout
  • Whole-House heating and ventilation – reducing the need for heating and air conditioning

That is stunning...

Will the cladding actually be white or like a steel? O_o

Don't like the base at all. Very late 50's retro that could have been designed by Oscar Niemeyer.

Including his trademark V-shaped pilotis



I find it interesting, a good work. But not really 'inspiring'.

They have similar supports for the 50's Brutalist tower Brooke House in Basildon. I think it is nice. The tower will be an asset

Cool building, didn't know about it. Niemeyer was really influential at that time...
