Redevelopment of brownfield site in prime location on the north bank of the River Thames

Fulham Reach is a multi-phase masterplan for the redevelopment the former Hammersmith Distillery site on the borders of Hammersmith and Fulham. With a prime location on the north bank of the River Thames the first phase sees the development of 138 residential units and associated luxury health spa, concierge and commercial
space for high end restaurants.

Phase 1 also includes the reconnection of the Thames Path foot-way along the north bank of the river, a new private pontoon and boat club, and the first section of the new boulevard, a focal element in the final masterplan which will run 200m, connecting Frank Banfield Park to the north east with the river.

Phase 2 completes the masterplan and incorporates two sleek, steel and glass apartment buildings on the water’s edge. These contrast and complement the London brick of the rest of the development.

Landscape

The main entrance and drop off area is bounded by a 35m long living green wall, and highlighted by a high quality water feature as focal elements to the space. Evergreen trees and raised planters of varying heights introduce a softening green element to the contemporary design, with feature light columns located to complement the planter arrangement.

On the upper floors, a private south facing podium courtyard with seating area, raised lawns and a viewing area overlooks the Thames. Private penthouses with external terraces offer unrivalled views along the Thames. Central to the main water feature will be a large stainless steel water blade designed in the form of a rowing oar to represent the rowing heritage of the reach of water onto which the development looks.

This will be mirrored by two smaller granite water tables located either side of the main entrance and will be visible from both inside and outside the building, with subtle lighting picking up the water movement.

Sustainability

The living greenwall, coupled with an ecological native planting buffer along the river edge, and two green roofs help enhance biodiversity and the natural habitats of wildlife across phase 1.

Future phases of the Masterplan will see further ecological enhancing elements, as well as the completion of the full extent of the boulevard, the implementation of a small riverside park and an extensive public art strategy across the whole site.
