The Lighthouse

Yabsley Street, Isle of Dogs, London, 2004
A residential development of 113 private and housing association apartments with views of the Thames and Canary Wharf.

The project comprises apartments in four separate blocks on a semi-basement car park. The site is adjacent to the ventilation shaft from the Blackwall tunnel, which influenced the massing and height of buildings onsite. The building mass is formed around the street edge of the site looking outwards, leaving the centre to be developed as a landscaped garden amenity space. This has the benefit of avoiding overlooking and overshadowing of the residential terraced houses on the adjacent site, by relating the Courtyard Garden to the rear gardens of the terraced housing. Penthouse units set back from the general facade line with terraces to reduce the mass of the building and create a stepped roofline. Goddard Manton Architects designed the project and achieved planning consent for St James Homes. HKR Architects executed the project as the contractors Architect.
