Marsh Wall

A 41 storey tower with linked 16 storey tower, which will deliver 216 new homes, of which 36% are affordable.

The design is one that connects and communicates; the towers converse with each other and with the immediate surroundings. The variance in height is to blend the large scale commercial buildings, which characterise the skyline of Canary Wharf to the north, with the smaller scale residential buildings to the south. Marsh Wall bridges the transition between the two areas, responding to both scales with its separate but related forms.

The result is an iridescent form, an overall simplicity which changes from different vantage points, achieved with an alternating application of the sensitive colour palette.
