Pencil tower, Wandsworth,
London, UK, 2018

This residential tower is proposed to transform a vacant plot used for ancillary car parking into a 68m-high mixed-use block comprising 27 residential units and a café. The site is adjacent to the Wandsworth mixed use project we completed in 2004 for Baylight Properties Ltd.

Carved facades and a slender vertical order give the building an elegant sculptural form. In keeping with the existing refurbished workshops buildings, the tumbled white brick and concrete tower have metal windows that reinforce the building's industrial character. 

The scheme also proposes extending the ‘Wandle Trail’ along the River Wandle with a 90m-long public realm walkway.

Project duration: 2014-
Gross internal area: 2413 m2
