    The master planning challenged the perceptions of riverside development

    The master planning challenged the perceptions of riverside development. Here 770 apartments in five 16 storey towers respond to the scale of the granaries but avoid the over shadowing of the old buildings by orientation to maximise penetration of sunlight into the site and ensure all flats enjoy a river view. Between the public squares and the bases of the taller buildings are a series of enclosed garden spaces that open onto the riverside walkway in order to minimise the edges of the towers, enhancing their slenderness the blocks are halved and dislocated in a horizontal and vertical shift reinforced by use of two materials – copper sheet and ceramic panels.
