Designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, Fulham Wharf is located in Fulham, United Kingdom . A 3.2 hectare residential and retail development on the Thames has been submitted for planning consent. Designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands for clients Sainsbury’s and Helical Bar, Fulham Wharf transforms an existing Sainsbury’s supermarket and derelict warehouses into a new superstore wrapped by 472 homes, two new public spaces, an extension to the public riverside and a new ecological garden on an abandoned jetty.
The new Sainsbury’s is screened by residential ‘townhouses’, containing duplexes, and these follow the form and scale of the historic precedent set by existing locally listed warehouse buildings. Behind them are apartment buildings, and rising in height toward the river, there are four slender towers of 9 to 17 storeys, providing legibility across the site and a defined presence on the River Thames.
