Emery Wharf

London Dock, Wapping

Emery Wharf was the first of the outline component plots at London Dock to be awarded reserved matters approval. The building contains 133 private and first time buyer homes, together with a ground floor of flexible commercial spaces that open up onto The Highway and Vaughan Way.  A resident's courtyard provides access and seclusion off Arrival Square and is a green buffer to the proposed school site to the east.

The building is predominantly masonry and forms a link between the precast masonry typology of Admiral and Alexander Wharfs with the brick warehouse style typologies that line The Highway.  Brick is interwoven with elements of precast concrete in different manners across the individual blocks of Emery Wharf with a stout, dark brick celebrating the junction of Dock Street, The Highway and Vaughan Way.

Further resident's communal gardens are provided on two roof levels of the building with views out over The City. A covered colonnade at the southern end of the building at ground floor aligns with the route at the rear of Clipper Wharf and extends all the way down Pennington Street, an uninterrupted axis of almost 400 metres.
