Chelsea CreekImages1 / Information
Location London SW6
Status On site
Squire and Partners designed the consented masterplan for Chelsea Creek, a new residential development which sets apartments around a newly reinstated series of canals in Fulham.
Located on a 7.5 acre brownfield site in a waterfront location, the development is comprised of new, high quality homes, commercial spaces, publicly accessible waterside parks and communal areas. The scheme also restores and refurbishes an existing lock, presenting a unique connection to the river Thames by creating a series of new canals which run through the waterfront neighbourhood.
The canal-side architecture of Amsterdam and Copenhagen inspired the design of the development. The masterplan is composed of long, linear blocks that allow dual aspect water views from homes, as well as creating easy access to the water. The buildings are predominantly of brick construction, and this, along with the site’s linear patterns, echoes the surrounding Victorian streetscape.
