Squire and Partners designed the master plan for Chelsea Creek, a new residential development, which sets apartments around a newly reinstated series of canals in Fulham.
Located on a 7.5 acre brownfield site in a waterfront location, the development is comprised of new, high-quality homes, commercial spaces, publicly accessible waterside parks and communal areas. The scheme also restores and refurbishes an existing lock, presenting a unique connection to the river Thames by creating a series of new canals which run through the waterfront neighbourhood.
The canal-side architecture of Amsterdam and Copenhagen inspired the design of the development. The master plan is composed of long, linear blocks that allow dual aspect water views from homes, as well as creating easy access to the water. The buildings are predominantly of brick construction, and this, along with the site's linear patterns, echoes the surrounding Victorian streetscape, with apartments from £5,999,950 – £6,349,950.
ToughGlaze supplied 21.5mm toughened laminate glass for the entire structural balustrade to a tight tolerance. PVB interlayer was used to meet the 0.74kn/m² line load required.
