Watersedge Phase 2


Phase 2 comprises three distinct buildings: a 4 storey residential building with retail on the ground floor, a mixed use building with offices apartments and an Aldi store and a single storey car parking structure built in to the higher ground of the business park adjacent.

Both buildings consolidate the built edge to the riverside avenue of the masterplan and define access and parking behind. The residential building includes continuous balconies overlooking the river and a communal roof garden. The retail building form is generated by the requirement for an unimpeded shop floor; large columns along the street façade support a transfer structure above.

Two principal external materials articulate the building form. Durable blue/grey engineering brickwork is used on the main building; in contrast the store is clad in red brick with yellow bands as used in the first phase building.
