The Glasshouse Gardens forms a key component of a new business district as part of the legacy from the London 2012 Olympic Games. Following the allocation of 15 million sqft of land in preparation for the Games, a further 4 million sqft of the commercial allocation is now to be developed as The International Quarter, comprising residential, retail, hotel and community uses.
Allies and Morrison were appointed to develop proposals for 333 units, across two residential towers in close proximity to the Olympic Stadium. The design has been carefully developed to the existing masterplan, which sets out the vision principles and development parameters from the original 2005 outline planning consent. The towers are located at the head of The International Quarter site, within the landscape of a new public park. A semi-private landscaped entrance court connects the towers at ground level, creating ‘a place’ between the buildings as a transition between the adjacent public park and Westfield Avenue, and further emphasising the ideas of ‘buildings within a park’.
