Wapping, London
Status: Concept design
Date: 2018

 

Wapping Industrial Quarter is a proposal for 46 residential units, 50% of which are affordable, and 1 commercial unit across 3 sites in Wapping.

PARTI’s design approach is to conserve, restore and celebrate the industrial heritage of Wapping. PARTI have proposed to preserve the existing façades, to ensure that the development retains the character of the area. Within the sites, elegant blocks protrude from the existing grain. These appear more contemporary in character yet and, clad in a pre-rusted steel, are another strong reference to Wapping’s industrial past. These blocks are stepped back to prioritise the existing brick façades in the streetscape.
