To create a new build apartment complex that is a contemporary interpretation of its historic sister building yet has its own modern identity. A place for residents to live, work and play with an array of luxury apartments, shared social and working areas, a fully equipped gymnasium and a roof garden.

The striking geodesic domes provide the perfect place for socialising on a summers evening or for sky gazing on a starry night.

Project - The Wharf


The Wharf is a striking complex in its own right, yet it blends seamlessly with its historic and new build sister buildings, thereby creating the magnificent Waterside Village. The structure of five storeys of load bearing masonry is unusual and pushed the limits of a masonry build but the client wished to remain true to the principles of Victorian construction methods; the skilful blending of the red and black bricks looks truly fabulous.

Some of the other technical solutions necessary were the grillage to accommodate the flood attenuation and ground floor car parking, anchoring of the roof garden luxury socialising areas to the concrete deck, and creating the deep recessed windows.

Every feature one could want is to hand; stylish apartments with bespoke kitchens, integrated appliances, high quality finishes and Juliet balconies, amazing shared working and socialising areas, a fully equipped gymnasium, and the ultimate experience – a dazzling roof garden.

Fully landscaped and stylishly fitted out with an array of luxury seating and two eye catching geodesic domes, this really is the place to be catching up with friends on a summer’s day or soaking up the evening vibes.

The wellbeing of residents and their sustainable cohesive living is prime importance and is reflected in the facilities and amenities, which also includes secure bike stores and EV charging points thereby presenting additional travel options.
