Wilkinson Eyre and Brisac Gonzalez have revealed plans for a pair of skyscrapers located in London’s Southwark, providing 52 floors of housing and 32 storeys of offices. The skyscrapers are to form part of the 18 Blackfriars Road masterplan designed by London studio Wilkinson Eyre Architects for a site just south of the River Thames.
Wilkinson Eyre Architects has designed a 178.5-metre-tall residential tower for the northern side of the site, while London firm Brisac Gonzalez has proposed a 136-metre-high office block. The site is also intended to include entertainment and shopping areas, and landscaping.
Sections of the residential tower are boxed out to lend it the appearance of a stack of glazed blocks. Each glazed facade is intended to be slightly angled to catch the light in different ways, visually breaking up the form of the tower.Indents between each block will host winter gardens to provide residents with access to outdoor space.
The 18 Blackfriars Road scheme proposed by Malaysian property developer Black Pearl also includes a 548 -bedroom hotel and a further residential block by Wilkinson Eyre Architects.
