The dock has been brought back into use by opening up access to the river, creating a unique waterside development which is permeable, legible, of high architectural quality. The scheme will be a new landmark for the South Fulham regeneration area.
There are two phases to Chelsea Creek with each having its own distinct character. The first phase includes a dockside plaza, a local park, private podium courtyards and private penthouse terraces. The entrance to the development is highlighted with a granite water table and stainless steel branding set within a lush landscape.
The entrance road, Park Street, has been designed to be in keeping with a typical Chelsea and Fulham Street, being tree lined and paved with granite. Park Street passes ground floor residential entrances, retail units and a health and fitness suite, linking to a dockside plaza at the foot of a 24 storey tower.
The Plaza provides a setting for the buildings, retail units and is linked to the local park with tree planting and a 250m long water rill with the convergence of the two character areas meeting with a 3m high stainless steel tapered column, illuminated from within with DMX control.
