Kingsland Wharves

Regeneration of the redundant brownfield sites around the Kingsland Basin in Hackney includes this mixed-use redevelopment. A series of live/work units, retail, commercial and new industrial spaces are arranged in a variety of building types designed to fit into the existing grain of the area. The reinforced concrete frames of the buildings have rationalised orthogonal reinforcement achieving a significant saving over other conventional systems. The top two floors of the multi-storey accommodation comprise walls and floors of solid cross laminated timber chosen for simplicity and economy.
