Whitechapel Vision
Type: Masterplanning
Value: Confidential
Date: 2013
Size: 100,000 sqm
Status: Feasibility Study Completed
Location: London, United Kingdom

Barts Health NHS Trust commissioned Edward Williams Architects to produce an architectural vision for the development of this site. We are continuing to work with the Trust to help realise this vision.

The proposal develops a series of public urban squares that allow a vibrant mixed-use development around, and in, them. Public urban spaces of different sizes and shapes are arranged with both object and background buildings to create a suitably dense urban form that encourages public interaction and provides opportunities for engagement and growth.

Site wide services, sustainable energy strategies and the proximity of the Underground and new Crossrail station will combine to make this an exemplary central urban development.

The buildings are designed to be flexible and will accommodate a variety of uses from apartments, to offices and research laboratories to ground floor retail and entertainment activities.
