Empire Works

Isle of Dogs, London

100 apartments in four new buildings with communal gardens and Thames riverside walk on the Isle of Dogs. Designed with severe programmatic constraints in consultation with London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC). Careful orientation of buildings and internal arrangements of apartments and balconies allowed river views for all units.

  • “In severe time limits the architects' deft site composition, massing and individual buildings achieved planning consent which doubled the previous consent, with better buildings, increased river views and public space. Their architecture and urban design skills are combined with a pragmatic ability to add market value”.
