PROJECT REPORT: RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS


31


form a part of the whole, created between the apartments’ enclosing walls and the outer edge of each floor plate. There are a wealth of variations when it comes to the terraces, with many of the Cluster apartments offering two terraces, the Lofts providing expansive wrap-around versions that connect with different interior spaces, and the Bay apartments’ terraces boasting double-height ceilings. The three exterior typologies are continued on the inside of the apartments, providing each with a distinct style. What all the homes have in common however, is that every facet of the design has been moulded by the architects with the user experience put first and foremost. Usable space is maximised, while each apartment remains “a clear part of the building’s architectural expression”.


Lifestyle


Both in the building and externally, a sense of a One Park Drive ‘lifestyle’ has been the guiding principle for the developers, and Canary Wharf Group has integrated a range of amenities to help create this. On the ground floor are a lounge and library, with floor to ceiling glazing, plus a cinema, and on the first floor there is a 20 metre pool, plus gym and spa. The riverside, surrounding parks, and landscaped gardens, will be maintained by the Canary Wharf Group, creating two distinct levels of public space below the actual ground floor of the building. Canary Wharf is also home to the capital’s largest collection of outdoor public art.

One Park Drive is the first of a brand new neighbourhood the Group is construct- ing which it hopes will combine urban convenience with exclusivity. Integrated into the development plan are high streets, boutique arcade style ‘Lanes’ and plenty of open, green spaces. There will also be a dedicated doctor’s surgery and a new local primary school.


Modern city living


One Park Drive will serve as a visual gateway to the district, and will be a striking focal point for this corner of the estate. It appears that no expense has been spared by the Canary Wharf Group in making the building the centrepiece of a new neigh- bourhood for discerning and no doubt affluent buyers. The architects’ expertise has been fully showcased in creating a new type of skyscraper to be the flagship for this new area of Canary Wharf, which will now be called home by thousands of residents as well as a place of work. The building could also however spark the dawn of a new era in high-rise accommodation, with its variety coupled with tactility of facade. Could it mark the beginning of the end for monolithic glass walls? Whatever, One Park Drive is a landmark in more porous tall buildings, openly playing with as well as celebrating their function.


The architects conclude: “The new tower will be both a symbol and the heart of the new urban quarter, an extension of a dynamic global community and the start of a new, vibrant neighbourhood.”
