Urban mixed use development
This urban design project reinvents a polluted yet highly iconic East London gas holder industrial site by creating new ground planes at different vertical levels. Hosting residential buildings along the river, the ground is an urban agricultural park containing communal and floodable gardens designed along the graphic traces of the former gas holders. On their lower levels, the buildings align themself with the urban fabric, creating a seamless relationship with its surroundings and offering new public spaces. Above, the Fanning gardens of the upper floors maintain the memorial presence of the gasholders, twisting its form to produce a new local iconic landscape of ascending elevated gardens.
