A visually unique urban quarter

Grosvenor Waterside

  • Location London, UK
  • Status Built
  • Service Architecture
  • Sector Residential
  • Area 25,000m²/269,100ft²
  • Client St James Group

We were asked to transform a derelict former industrial site close to London’s Chelsea Bridge into a new urban quarter. The result is 103 private apartments and 196 affordable apartments over two blocks, linked by a single storey with a landscaped roof. Each block is scaled to its surroundings: the larger one faces the listed buildings of Churchill Gardens, while the smaller one faces the dock, and includes a colonnade with a restaurant and bar.

Spacious enclosed balconies create a rhythmic arrangement of voids and draw in light and air, while slender slotted windows offer privacy for bedrooms and bathrooms. A design developed by artist Clare Woods is etched into the cladding, making the building’s exterior a canvas for a piece of public art.

Where there was once a neglected site, there are now hundreds of new homes, complete with stunning views of the Thames.

We worked closely with St James Group to develop this scheme in a manner that is distinctive and special but sensitive to the surrounding area and the environment. The return on investment for St James has been a scheme that saw all the private apartments sold prior to completion.
