The practice proposed an urban typology which integrated traditional courtyard blocks with strategically placed tall buildings. The courtyards deliver well-scaled streets and the tall buildings denote the position of new public squares.
The Waterman, Greenwich Peninsula
Pilbrow & Partners has completed the first building as part of the Greenwich Peninsula masterplan for Knight Dragon. The Waterman will deliver 269 new homes and a public square at the heart of the new urban district.
In 2013 Pilbrow & Partners’ proposals for a five block masterplan to the east of the Greenwich Peninsula were selected following an invited competition. Our approach refined an earlier masterplan building on its clear urban block structure. The masterplan had suggested homogeneous linear bars of accommodation distributed across the quarter. The Waterman is the key residential aspect of the Greenwich Riverside masterplan.
