Carpenters Wharf offers ‘transition’ between low-rise sheds and larger new resi, architect says
Studio Egret West has completed a new mixed-use development on the site of a former furniture-maker’s business at Fish Island in east London.
The practice said its 44-home Carpenters Wharf scheme – just across the River Lee Navigation from Olympic Park – was designed to be “a high-quality transitional building between the neighbouring low rise sheds and the more recent larger residential projects”.
Six storeys tall, the building features an exposed wooden frame, darkened timber cladding and a pitched roof, which Studio Egret West said was designed to echo the character of traditional canalside warehouses of the past.
