This project completes the Thames Path by re-opening and enhancing the closed section of walkway under Globe View, connecting the new riverside walkway at Queensbridge House Hotel with the existing riverside walkway.
The design maximises natural light levels, improves visibility and reduces antisocial behaviour. Bespoke metalwork with integrated lighting has been designed to echo the dynamic flow and tides of the River Thames through the use of high efficiency LED lighting with an integrated smart control system, driven by an environmentally sustainable brief. Future commissioned artwork and historic interpretation in liaison with local stakeholders will further enhance the space.
The design was developed through feedback from the 2019 consultation. Rivington Street Studio has worked closely with a team of specialist consultants, the Globe View Freehold and City of London’s environment and urban design teams, alongside lighting and police architecture liaison officers.
“Architects Rivington Street Studio have done a handsome job.”
