The Last & Final Phase of Royal Wharf London
Situated at the heart of the Royal Docks, the Royal Wharf is positioned east of the major business district Canary Wharf.
The 15ha Royal Wharf is conceptualised to be a spectacular residential, business and leisure destination with a panoramic view across the River Thames.
The master plan, conceived by Glenn Howells Architects, will provide over 3,000 homes, a new school, shops, offices and riverside restaurants to an estimated 10,000 residents.
The proposed 40.25m and 58.25m tall apartment towers are located on Plots 17 and 18 within Phase 3 of the Royal Wharf.
The Marco Polo Building on Plot 18 is the final and tallest waterfront building anchoring the entire development’s corner, consisting of three vertically stacked building boxes.
Its striking silhouette along the Thames waterfront is created by the subtle tectonic shift of these three boxes, unifying the housing block into a single twisting urban entity.
To maintain the strong master planning relationship with the adjacent Marco Polo Building, the James Cook Building utilises a similar façade treatment while reversing its colour palette for subtle differentiation.
Exquisite Design in a Premium
Inspired by the varying patterns of London’s weather, the building’s façade and character is designed to modify with the seasons, as the façade louvered screens are movable.
Each unit has the ability to adjust the position of their sliding louvered panels to provide sun and wind shading capabilities depending on the weather or season. This gives the building façade an organic and lively feel – similar to the fluctuating seasons in nature.
The sliding panels, combined with the dynamic twist of the blocks, work together to create a high-impact flagship design.
Capitalising on the river views, the top and lowest blocks are gently rotated on a central axis towards Canary Wharf, creating views of the water even for east-facing units located away from the water’s edge.
The middle block, consisting of apartments on the eighth to the 13th storey, is then rotated in the opposite direction to provide views of the new pier. The middle block also leans towards the green plaza and overlooks the Thames Barrier and Thames Barrier Park.
Breathtaking Riverfront Space
Mariner’s Quarter offers the neighbourhood’s most premium location and exclusive architecture, with some buildings offering incredible arching river views.
The spirit of adventure permeates every home in Mariner’s Quarter. Generous in scale and impeccably designed, these homes are inspired by Georgian mansion housing and warehouses reflecting the industrial heritage of the area.
The Marco Polo Building
The crowning glory of the Mariner’s Quarter, riverfront Marco Polo boasts a bold design, consisting of three vertically stacked building boxes, made striking by a subtle twist of each box. Inspired by the unpredictable London weather, the building’s façade and character was designed to modify with each season, with the louvered balcony screens adjustable to provide shade from the sun or wind while enjoying outside space.
The James Cook Building
Part of the same design as the Marco Polo building, the James Cook features a similar design without the quirky twists. Adjustable balcony screens lend the building a living, breathing feel, creating a sense of changing with the seasons. The colour palette of this building is the reverse of the neighbouring Marco Polo, to create a subtle differentiation between the plots.
