Architecture

Introduction

The Building

The Gasholders’ architecture is anything but ordinary; it piques the curiosity of all who see it. Part of the architects’ vision is that the building’s façade should appear alive and responsive to passers-by; it will shift and change constantly as the people who live within it adjust their view.

Most of its 145 residences have generous private balconies or terraces with views across the capital. Full height triple-glazing emphasises this panoramic living alongside folding, perforated screens peppered across the façade for privacy and protection from the sun.

The circular aspect of the gasholders inspired the practice to arrange the apartments around three atria, flooded with light from skylights above. ‘We wanted every aspect to be unexpected, so even if you’re in the roof garden, looking down inside, you’ll see something interesting,’ says Jeff Lee, Associate at Wilkinson Eyre. ‘The pool of water in the central courtyard between the three gasholder frames is designed to reflect the point where the structures meet.’

The main entrance to the Gasholders

The main entrance to the Gasholders is situated on the newly appointed Lewis Cubitt Square, where a cantilevered canopy and glass door lead to the soaring heights of the lobby, which has a 24-hour concierge. Inside, a feature staircase and highest quality finishes enhance the splendid marriage of contemporary architecture and Victorian engineering.
