Tom Dixon at Greenwich Peninsula
Tom Dixon penthouse apartment at Greenwich Peninsula

The instantly recognisable Thames river loop that literally defines the eastern outpost of Greenwich Peninsula on the London map is currently experiencing a major creative and architectural transformation. Best known as the site of the O2 arena, formerly the Millennium Dome, this industrial wasteland is starting to emerge as a new hub of culture and entertainment.

Masterplanning this in its entirety are developers Knight Dragon, whose ambitious regeneration scheme will see the development of 190 acres of homes, schools and shops, along with a thriving arts, culture and leisure scene catering for both residents and visitors alike.

The first residential apartments designed by SOM Architects and Tom Dixon Design Research Studio are currently under construction and earlier this month I was invited along for a taster of what to expect.
