Architecture | Residential Development | Location : London, United-Kingdom | Area : 51.300m2
This urban project reinvests a polluted yet highly iconic East London industrial site by creating new “soils” at different vertical levels. Hosting residential buildings along the river, the ground is an urban agricultural park containing communal and floodable gardens built on the industrial traces. On their lower levels, the buildings align themself with the urban fabric, creating a seamless relationship with their surroundings offering new public spaces. Above, the Fanning gardens of the upper floors maintain the memorial presence of the gasholders, twisting their form to produce a new local iconic landscape; the ascending elevated gardens.
