herzog & de meuron‘s ‘one park drive’ — the studio’s first residential building in the UK — nears completion in london‘s canary wharf. articulated by an eye-catching cylindrical form, the 58-storey, 205-meter-tall tower is divided into three distinct sections that offer different types of accommodation.

one park drive forms the centerpiece of ‘wood wharf’ — a new district of canary wharf. for the exterior, herzog & de meuron wanted to distinguish the new tower from its orthogonal, office block neighbors and express more a human scale with a rhythmic elevational treatment made up of stepped balconies and terraces.

the tower is divided into three distinct sections

 

 

the new building comprises a total of 483 luxury apartments as well as a range of on-site amenities. the program is organized over three sections: spacious loft style apartments on floors 02-09; cluster residences layered to maximize space in the mid-section; and large bay units toward the top of the building. there are also three apartments known as the ‘level 32 sky lofts’ on the 32nd floor designed by bowler james brindley, who has also created the interior of the loft style apartments. the cluster and bay apartments are designed by goddard littlefair.
