The Greenwich Peninsula Upper Riverside emerges adjacent to the orbicular O2 Arena in London, including 5 spectacular angular glass prisms.
The mixed-use buildings will be residential-led with approximately 800 homes overlooking expansive views of the Thames through full-height glazing.
The building heights increase away from the river along the site edge continuing the undulating of building heights along the eastern bank of the Peninsula. The distinctive stepped geometric exteriors of the 5 structures each have a subtly distinct glass and honeyed stone façade that creates an illusion of translucency as angles change across the envelopes.
The development is designed by architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, world leaders in high-rise architecture including the World Trade Center, New York and the Burj Khalifa, Dubai. Wintech were appointed to provide Façade Engineering Consultancy services to the development for clients Knight Dragon.
