The Spanish practices Barrozi Veiga and Selgas Cano and the British firms 6a Architects, Adam Khan Architects, Architecture 00, David Kohn Architects, HNNA, and Mole Architects designed a total of sixteen buildings now under construction in London’s new Design District, set in the heart of Greenwich Peninsula. The 1-hectare complex of work spaces for the creative community is located close to the Millennium Dome of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.
Each of the teams named above designed two buildings with no inkling of the rest of the projects, and the result is a mix of styles in a public sphere planned and unified by the Danish company Schulze + Grassov. One of the schemes by Architecture OO features a rooftop multi-sport court.
Scheduled for opening in September 2020, the Design District is part of Knight Dragon, a larger development that is being planned by Allies and Morrison.
