fulham wharf's riverside launch
26 September 2013
The launch of Barratt London’s Fulham Wharf scheme was timed to coincide with today’s high tide, so that invited guests could arrive by boat. The celebrations were held at the development’s newly opened marketing suite, which has been created through Broadway Malyan’s innovative conversion of a derelict river jetty. fabrik worked with the Architects and Bauder to create a swathe of wildflower grassland across the deck, which wraps up over the building into a sedum planted green roof.

Visitors to the marketing suite can view the Fulham Riverside development model and enjoy striking views across the Thames. In time the building is set to become an educational and environmental centre, promoting understanding of riparian environments. It will also give the local community a safe access point to the water, enabling river-based sports and activities.
