Skylines

Skylines is a project that seeks to bring 577 units of housing to the Isle of Dogs in East London through three towers of different sizes. Of the units, 62 are at intermediate rent and 109 are at social rent.

The scheme comes with significant public and private amenities including a new primary school for 475 pupils, park area and water feature, meanwhile, visual permeability through the site is achieved via the Marsh Wall Square.

Through numerous elevations, the project acts as a welcome transition in scale between the financial towers of Canary Wharf and the outer-lying residential area. This sensitive approach to massing has been twinned with a unifying architectural language so that, despite the discrepancies in shape and size, the project feels holistic.
