Scheme Design

Across its ten floors, a rooftop restaurant, hotel, gym, office and serviced apartments are planned. At ground floor level, a major new food market activates the central square at the heart of Wood Wharf.

A side core steel framed superstructure provides an adaptable framework within which each of the programme elements can be accommodated. A filigree diagrid provides the lateral stability for the building’s superstructure allowing atria to be created within the interior.
