Merchants Walk, located within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is a mixed use BTR led development by the Peabody Housing Association offering 557 high quality residential apartments and commercial accommodation arranged around landscaped public courtyards, linking to Devons Road.
The first phase of the Merchant’s Walk development was completed by Galliford Try Partnerships, delivering 259 apartments and 8 B1 commercial spaces to a thriving local market.
Working from an early design stage Contrasol have designed, manufactured and installed over 200 of our 40/40 fixed shutters to the development in order to enhance the full palette of materials which includes brick, timber, metal cladding and glass, all identified to establish the aesthetic character of each building type, responding to the use, context and orientation of each.
The proposals address a gap in the existing Urban Townscape with the creation of a new square adjacent to the Devons Road Docklands Light Railway Station. A central square acts as the centre of a new ‘Place’ with a mix of local facilities and uses within appropriate scale buildings.
