Planning Submission : Greenwich Peninsula

Duggan Morris Architects have submitted a planning application for a housing scheme as part of the Lower Brickfields portion of Zonal Masterplan C of the wider Greenwich Peninsula redevelopment. The location of the building can be seen as the ‘entrance’ to the wider development, and will contain 220no. one, two and three bed apartments.

Our massing creates three distinct buildings on the plot, each with a tower element and a lower shoulder element, arranged around a ground floor podium. Each building is of a different height creating a hierarchy of composition. The largest building is positioned towards the wider masterplan to the north which is larger in scale; the second building is located on the east corner creating a marker to define the entrance to the masterplan; and the smallest building is situated to relate back to the school and lower-lying context that is to the south/south-west.

The southern corner is set at a lower datum to maximise the amount of sunlight into the plot, whilst the towers are positioned to avoid overshadowing and afford the best views across the Peninsula. The podium contains a car park with a shared garden above. Pavilions and colonnades are positioned within the elevated landscape to connect the different buildings and provide space for ancillary uses.

A planning decision is targeted for Q4:2016.
