Nine Elms

This former industrial site in the heart of the new Nine Elms regeneration area has been transformed into a prime residential-led mixed-use development comprising 813 high-end apartments and a sitewide 2.4ha two-storey basement. As part of the scheme, 112 new affordable homes have also been created for social housing provider A2 Dominion.

We worked in collaboration with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to deliver their consented scheme design, which consisted of six pavilions that share the same architectural language but vary in length and height. 

The common palette of expressed steelwork and precast concrete link the six buildings to form one scheme, however each building is distinguished by uniquely coloured steel balconies and lift shaft steelwork revealed by the feature glass lift cores.

Integral to the scheme was our design for an exclusive residents’ clubhouse including a daylight-lit basement swimming pool and holistic spa, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, spacious lounge and library area. Over three quarters of the site is dedicated to open space such as landscaped gardens, a riverside walkway, pocket park, restaurants, bars, crèche, and a public piazza.
