Nine Elms_ Pier

Project type: Invited Competition
Location: Nine Elms, London
Status: Competition winner

The aim of the scheme is to renew and revitalise the pier in order bring benefit to the residents in wake of the developments of the Nine Elms area.

The pier will remain the same in function, the 3 existing structures will be replaced with new and improved buildings which have the same footprint and massing. The new architectural addition to the pier is a covered walkway around its perimeter onto which 170m2 of photovoltaic panels are mounted creating free electricity for the residents. The edges of the pier are clad with glass reinforced concrete panels with integrated handrails.
