Isle of Dogs

Occupying a prime position in The Tower Hamlets’ thriving Millennium Quarter, this mixed-use building is composed of three distinct volumes, each responding to its immediate context and internal use.

The two primary elements are 14-storeys each and address Millharbour Lane and Millwall Inner Dock respectively, whilst the 7-storey linking block defines the new public access route across the site from the road to the dockside.

Although the principle material of the development is a combination of light and dark brick, our design also introduces strong accent colours to the elevations to help identify each of the three building blocks; orange is proposed on Millwall Inner Dock, yellow on Millharbour and a pale blue grey on the linking block. Between the commercial units at ground level these colours are repeated to define the residential reception areas. Above ground a mixture of tenures and flat types are accommodated within total of 136 apartments.
