Millennium Mills

Silvertown Dock, London

When architecture itself becomes the exhibit the result can be inspiring and valuable in equal measure. At Millennium Mills we sought to create a large scale retail, leisure, commercial and residential environment whereby the building itself is part of the festival.

The entrance is through a 3 storey high ‘water-wall’ that provides natural cooling. Lower levels contain a winter garden with shopping, eating, drinking and indoor sports facilities. Three storey sky lobbies provide managed business space and the upper levels of residential accommodation are crowned by a panoramic roof top restaurant.

    • Restored principal elevations
