Client One Housing Group
Location London, UK
Timber Wharf is a residential-led, mixed use and mixed tenure development on a challenging brownfield site at the corner of Kingsland Road and the Regents Canal. The development provides 87 affordable dwellings within four new buildings, including seven family houses, commercial space, a canal-side restaurant and a charity daycare centre.
The coherent design successfully resolves complexities of the existing site with a common architectural language. Large ground floor commercial units enliven the street scene and a double-height restaurant enjoys views onto the canal.
Dwellings are generously sized and typically planned with private external space, south or west facing living spaces and north or east facing bedrooms.
The façades are unified with contemporary and attractive materials including highly insulated render, cedar cladding and stack bonded brickwork.
