WilkiinsonEyre is one of the most respected architectural practices in the world, designing across sectors that include major infrastructure, residential and hospitality, corporate headquarters, education, culture and sport. We are currently working with some of the most innovative operators around the world at the intersection of top end residential and destination developments. By optimising the best quality offer in hospitality, fitness and lifestyle, these landmark schemes bring unrivalled resources to residents and visitors simultaneously and blur historic boundaries between home and hotel for a discerning international clientele.

One Barangaroo, opening its doors to guests in December 2020, is one of the most eagerly anticipated new hotel/apartment resorts anywhere in the world, combining six star hotel amenities with unrivalled residential accommodation in an “inhabited sculpture” overlooking Sydney harbour. Developing the latest trends in service led residential and hospitality sectors, the ambitious scheme employs the highest quality architecture and design to provide a tailored experience for residents and guests. World class resources include bars, restaurants, indoor and outdoor wellness facilities and concierge service, all provided on site in Sydney’s tallest building. Our selective portfolio of high-end residential projects includes some of the most easily recognisable schemes in cities around 1

the world. In London, the King’s Cross Gasholders has become an instant landmark for this highly acclaimed regeneration quarter and one of the capital’s most coveted addresses. The sensitive repurposing of the former gasholder frames for residential apartments creatively reuses the listed historic structure while introducing new elegance and state of the art materials and finishes. Battersea Power Station is another prominent London location where we are incorporating top of the market residential accommodation in a design that respects and draws upon the landmark building’s historic legacy. The scheme, completing in 2021, delivers over 250 new homes from stylish studios to rooftop villas with their own “gardens in the sky” between the fluted art deco chimneys, a unique selling point for discerning purchasers. In Asia, the practice gained prominence with the instantly recognisable Guangzhou International Finance Center, winner of the RIBA Lubetkin Prize, that includes a five star Four Seasons Hotel as well as serviced apartments. As testament to our unique understanding of 21st Century tourism, the iconic Gardens by the Bay, developed for the Singapore Development Corporation, has become one of the most visited tourist destinations in the region.

Gasholders London London

King’s Cross, led by Argent, is the largest urban redevelopment scheme in Europe and the rich industrial heritage of the site is integral to its renaissance. Among the most distinctive and beautiful features to be retained is a linked trio of gasholder guide frames, constructed in 1867, now Grade II listed and the world’s only connected trio of this kind to be refurbished for residential use. WilkinsonEyre won a design competition in 2002 with a concept for three residential buildings to be housed within the elegant cast iron frames. The concept proposed three drums of accommodation at differing heights to suggest the movement of the original gasholders, which would have risen up or down depending on the pressure of the gas within. A fourth, imposed, drum shape, located at the centre of the frames, formed an open courtyard, celebrating the intersection of the cast iron structures and bringing light into the heart of the scheme.


The bold vision is articulated in its detail with a dynamic counterpoint between old and new. The heavy industrial aesthetic and raw physical materiality of the guide structures contrasts with the lightness and intricacy of the interior spaces, which draw inspiration from the delicate refinement of a traditional watch movement.

Battersea Power Station London

WilkinsonEyre was appointed in 2013 for the refurbishment of the iconic Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station. The proposed designs retain and respect the integrity of the historic landmark whilst also creating new state-of-the-art spaces, including events, retail, restaurants and cafés; a public viewing platform; over 58,000m² of office space; and 252 villas, apartments and penthouses.

The residential elements comprise conversion units located within the existing fabric of the Power Station and new build apartments and villas. The accommodation occupies the two switch houses on either side of the Power Station, as well as centrally on top of the Boiler House roof, framing an open landscaped garden square.

Residents of the converted Switch House homes will enter the building walking through one of two piazzas while occupants


of the Boiler House properties will access the building via the wash towers, arriving at their apartment levels via a glass lift at the base of the iconic chimneys. The properties will be among the most exclusive addresses available in London, recognised for their unique location within the converted structure and impressive views.

The first residential phase completed in May 2021.

Situated at the top of the 440m high Guangzhou International Finance Center, this five star plus Four Seasons Hotel has panoramic views of the city. Guests arrive at the sky lobby on the 70th floor at the base of a stunning 30-storey atrium – tall enough to house London’s St Paul’s Cathedral where a range of lounge and dining facilities are clustered. A Michelin star restaurant and sky bar located on the 100th floor offer world class dining with spectacular views. Hotel residents benefit from the extensive banqueting and conferencing space in the podium of the tower, with spa and health club facilities provided within the hotel on the 64th floor. A helipad is located at the top of the tower.

In addition to the Four Seasons Hotel, the Guangzhou International Finance Center Ascott Service Apartments provide 314 elegant luxury apartments, including a mix of one, two and three bedroom units.

The building was named 2011 Best Tall Building in Asia/Australasia by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, and won the prestigious RIBA Lubetkin Prize (2012).

One Barangaroo Sydney

In 2013, WilkinsonEyre won an international design competition for the new Crown Hotel in Sydney; the brief called for a high quality, landmark design on this extraordinary harbour site. This incredible project will capture the vibrancy of Sydney to create a strong new destination on the waterfront, for both tourists and Sydneysiders. The six-star hotel and casino features a number of high-end leisure facilities. Above the podium sit hotel rooms and suites, with high-end residential properties at the top of the tower. The concept takes its inspiration from nature, composed of an elegant, curved geometry. The tower’s form emanates from three petals which twist and rise together. These curvaceous forms are adjusted to optimise ‘million dollar views’ with the majority of the hotel rooms looking out


over both the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. As the petals spiral towards the sky, the form tapers allowing the creation of some truly unique ‘super luxury’ full floor apartments.

At the lower levels, the podium responds to the adjacent public space with terraces and entrances at ground level that make strong connections, particularly to the waterfront, with cafés, bars, shops and restaurants to encourage activity. The project is nearing completion with the hotel opening in December 2020.

18 Blackfriars London

The design of this scheme continues WilkinsonEyre’s work on the redevelopment of this site, having previously secured planning permission for a mixed-use tower in 2009. The mixed-use scheme includes a 178.5m high residential tower containing 227 new homes over 51 levels, a 550-bed hotel and 61 affordable housing units. A range of on-site retail, a small live music venue and a 136m high office tower by Brisac Gonzales complete the accommodation. The main elements of the scheme are gathered around a new public square at the heart of the development. Pedestrian permeability and high quality public realm are key design elements.


Location London, UK Client Black Pearl Limited Apartment mix 227 units Hotel 550 rooms Area 111,500m² Planning Achieved July 2017


The design of the residential tower has been developed to create a unique new signature building on the London skyline that sits comfortably within the emerging cluster of towers. A deliberately slender form has been developed with a simple rectilinear floorplate, which has been sculpted to appear as a series of separated stacked blocks. The glazed façades of each block are then orientated at subtly varied angles to catch the light in different ways and break down the form of the tower. Generous winter gardens are provided for all the residential units with planted balconies at the ‘collar’ levels between each expressed block. The top of the tower is finished with lightweight glass overruns that create a recognisable silhouette against the sky.




Calthorpe Street London

This residential development is part of the Mount Pleasant Masterplan in Islington, London, and forms an enclosure around the reconfigured Royal Mail delivery facilities on Mount Pleasant. The development is separated into two sites: Phoenix Place and Calthorpe Street. Calthorpe Street provides 336 new homes of mixed tenure arranged around a new public square. The area is further enhanced with a number of landscaped community gardens.

WilkinsonEyre’s scheme was designed to meet all relevant housing standards, regulations and design guides whilst resolving all of the critical interfaces associated with forming a boundary around the Royal Mail’s 24hour service yard.


Location London, UK Client Royal Mail Group Apartment mix 155 units Total gross residential area 19,173m² Total net residential area 14,856m² Date Completion 2021


The nature of this boundary condition created a number of problems that were resolved through the use of duplex ‘up-andover’ units that maximise the net to gross areas, ensuring that all flats have good daylighting (with the majority benefiting from dual aspect). A raised, community amenity space is created over the top of part of the service yard and the rest of the service yard is covered with an extensive green roof planted with a flowering meadow, that provides the necessary acoustic separation and a fantastic visual amenity.

Hong Kong Luxury Apartments Hong Kong

This scheme for 40 luxury apartments with associated amenities is partly inspired by the classic English residential ‘crescent’. The plan elegantly curves towards the north, symbolically embracing distant views and greenery. The facades adopt a classical reading of base, middle and ‘attic’ story, suitably proportioned. The architectural language is further influenced in part by twentieth century ‘streamlined modernism’, the style in which many of the original buildings at this locality were designed. This style is characterised by the incorporation of strong horizontal lines, rendered walls, and with nautical references to the details. Strong horizontals are expressed in the main frame and the roofline. Fine detailing of the handrails, balconies and canopies echo the building’s clean sweeping lines. The apartments are characterised by their generous proportions and provide elegant flexible spaces for entertaining and family use, together with stunning views

overlooking greenery to the mountains in the north. The apartments contain through living spaces connected to generous balconies offering links to the natural world outside. Supporting a luxury lifestyle, the building has an expansive main lobby offering a range of amenities including reception, concierge and business centre facilities, akin to a high end luxury hotel. Luxury clubhouse facilities are also provided and cater especially for families; these include a stunning cantilevered infinity pool, gym, multi-function activity space and a children’s play area.

Our proposal aims to redefine the conventional apartment block and to provide not only a high quality, distinctive architecture but wider amenities for modern living. The new residential blocks will set a new benchmark for luxury lifestyles in Hong Kong.

One Queensbridge Melbourne

In August 2015, WilkinsonEyre won the international competition to design the 90-storey Queensbridge Tower located in Melbourne’s Southbank area. The development will comprise 710 apartments and a 400-room five–star hotel, incorporating a publicly accessible observation deck with a restaurant, bar and garden terrace.

Sa nd rid ge Bri dg e

WilkinsonEyre’s elegant solution for the Queensbridge Tower will be created by three interlocking plectrum shapes to provide a graceful, sculptural composition. The tapering forms allow the tower to read as a beautiful object with a unique identity, contrasting against the more ridged forms of the adjacent buildings. The glass façade will be modulated with faceted stone blades for the gentle repeating curves of the three forms to catch and reflect light across their surfaces.

7th Avenue New York


This proposal for a 600m super high rise tower in Manhattan provides an elegant, landmark mixed-use tower on a site close to Central Park. The distinctive 116-storey tower provides over 152,918m² of mixed use accommodation including 37,000m² office, a 15,800m² hotel and 60,300m² of ultra-high end apartments. The tower has been designed as a series of vertical zones to suit the specific floor plate and ceiling height requirements of each different use. This results in a gently stepping form with a series of dramatic landscaped sky lobbies positioned at the transfer between each use.

The 150 luxury apartments have been positioned above a 200m datum to allow uninterrupted views of the Park and Manhattan. A distinctive hexagonal structural frame is expressed externally and provides rigidity to the super tall and slim building form. At the base of the tower a podium provides individual entrance lobbies for the various uses as well as a significant retail, food and beverage provision facing a new public plaza.

In 2016, WilkinsonEyre developed this design as part of an invited international design competition for two slender landmark residential towers located on a high profile site adjacent to Lake Michigan in Chicago. The tallest tower (455m to the top of the crown and 515m to top of the spire), contains 345 high end condominiums and 460 apartments tailored to the local market and set out over 125 floors. The tower itself is conceived as a sculpted and articulated form based around a regular floorplate designed to maximise views out and create a slender, vertical emphasis to the tower’s appearance whilst maximising efficiency and flexibility of layout. The smaller 227m high second tower contains a further 260 condominiums over 61 floors as part of a second phase of development.

A wide range of amenity spaces are contained both within the towers and in a heavily landscaped, terraced podium building at their base, designed to respond to contrasting edge conditions of the site. A generous central drop-off welcomes the buildings’ occupants home and restaurants and cafes line the edges, knitting the proposals into the surrounding neighbourhood.

The structural strategy for the scheme was deliberately simple in its concept and based on a concrete structure developed with local construction expertise in mind.

Other Projects

Cooled Conservatories, Gardens by the Bay

8 Finsbury Circus

21 Moorfields

One of the most ambitious cultural projects of recent years, the innovative Cooled Conservatories have become Singapore landmarks. The two main conservatory structures are among the largest climate-controlled glasshouses in the world, covering an area in excess of 20,000m², and showcase the flora of natural ecosystems most likely to be affected by climate change.

The client’s brief was for an ‘exemplary’ new office building on this historic City site adjacent to the listed Britannic House by Edwin Lutyens, with access from both Finsbury Circus and South Place.

With development land in limited supply in every mature city, innovative solutions and collaborative team working are helping to unlock challenging sites. The new development at 21 Moorfields in an example of this approach.


Comprising three gardens covering a total of 101 hectares, the overall project was central to the government’s visionary plan to transform the city state into a ‘cityin-a-garden’. Part of a British-led team, WilkinsonEyre’s brief was to design an architectural icon, a horticultural attraction and a showcase for sustainable technology. The gardens are now one of the most visited attractions in the world.


London, UK

The new building provides 15,000m² of grade A, flexible office space with ground floor retail. The redevelopment includes the construction of new contemporary Portland Stone façades and the retention of a portion of the north façade dating from the 1920s. WilkinsonEyre’s proposals maximise the full development potential of the extremely constrained site, whilst enhancing the historic context. Entrances on both the north and south provide access to a lobby running the length of the ground floor anticipating the opening of Moorgate Crossrail, also designed by WilkinsonEyre.

London, UK

Positioned directly above an existing London Underground station and a future Crossrail ticket hall, this complex oversite development project will deliver a new headquarters building for the City of London. Constraints include building over live rails, limited space for piling and preserving view corridors. The development covers approximately 64,000m² and comprises two office buildings, enhanced pedestrian permeability and a new public square with high-quality retail and improved landscaping.

Gresham St Paul’s London, UK

The redevelopment of Gresham St Paul’s for Stanhope, provides 15,500m² of flexible office space over nine levels. The decision to retain the overall structure was driven by sustainability, and analysis has demonstrated that the deep retrofit of the 1990s building to extend its life by 30 more years is the most carbon efficient solution.

Two existing levels of the building have been rebuilt and an additional level added to the current footprint. The stepped design has created landscaped roof terraces with extensive views of St Paul’s and the City of London. The remodelling improves existing external façade with new build elements using natural stone to give a contemporary architectural identity.

Emirates Air Line, London Cable Car London, UK

This cable car across the River Thames represents an exciting addition to the capital’s infrastructure and is the first urban cable car system in the UK. The crossing provides a valuable and much-needed link between the two major landmark venues of the O2 Arena and the ExCeL Exhibition and Conference Centre on the north and south banks of the river. This new physical link provides a direct connection as well as a dramatic and memorable experience for residents and visitors, and supports the vision of transforming this wider area into a bustling metropolitan district with new businesses, homes and job opportunities.

Weston Library, University of Oxford Oxford, UK

Part of the University of Oxford’s world famous Bodleian Library, the Grade Il listed "New Bodleian" was originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1930s. In 2006, WilkinsonEyre was appointed to refurbish the Library as a new cultural and intellectual landmark for the University with better access befitting its central location. The project has created high-quality storage for the Library’s valuable special collections; developed new space for the support of advanced research; and has expanded public access to its great treasures via the new foyer, galleries and shop accessed directly off Broad Street.

Other new facilities include a digital media centre, a visiting scholars' centre, a lecture theatre, and a suite of seminar rooms to enable teaching and master-classes based on the Library’s special collections.


Other Projects

CIBC Square

Toronto, Canada

CIBC Square will provide a major new mixed-use development and transport hub at the heart of the financial district. The scheme includes twin 250m-high towers flanking a rail corridor and linked at high level by a sky park, plus a new bus terminal for Metrolinx and connections into Toronto’s Union Station, subway and lightrail systems. As the new headquarters for CIBC Bank, the towers will extend Toronto’s financial district towards Lake Ontario. Both towers feature a lightly folded glazed façade, creating a diamond pattern which adds a vertical scale and modulation contrasting with surrounding buildings. The first phase of this two-phase project is under construction including trading floors, retail and restaurants.


Dyson Institute of Engineering & Technology

HS2 Old Oak Common

WilkinsonEyre has completed an undergraduate village for the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology. The landscaped village of modular-housing pods, with communal amenities and a central social and learning hub, is based within the Dyson Campus.

WilkinsonEyre has designed the HS2 Old Oak Common interchange, a major new hub providing connections to conventional rail services including the Elizabeth Line. The station will acting as a catalyst for regeneration and social infrastructure for this part of West London, the subject of a special planning & development corporation.

Malmesbury, UK

As well as establishing a new typology in student accommodation, the project breaks ground in the design, masterplanning and precision engineering of truly modular prefabricated building technologies for rapid construction. The village is designed to accommodate up to 50 students plus visiting Dyson staff. The high-quality living pods are fabricated from crosslaminate timber (CLT) in a factory for rapid on-site assembly.

London, UK

A series of underground high-speed platforms are linked by a shared overbridge providing connections to conventional rail services. The station’s distinctiveness is defined by a spectacular vaulted roof inspired by the industrial heritage of the adjacent Great Western Railway.

Achieving planning permission in May 2020, we are now delivering the scheme on site.

Gateshead Millennium Bridge Gateshead/Newcastle, UK

Visually elegant when static and in motion, the bridge offers a great spectacle during its opening operation – during the day and at night.

The design is based on two graceful parabolic curves of over 100 metres, one forming the deck and the other supporting it and spanning between two new islands running parallel to the quaysides. Opening like an eyelid, the innovative bridge lets shipping on the Tyne pass beneath. For pedestrians and cyclists, this landmark structure links Newcastle’s quayside with Gateshead Quays – the new arts and cultural quarter to the south. It won the 2002 RIBA Stirling Prize.

Compton & Edrich Stands, Lord’s Cricket Ground

Olympic Basketball Arena, London 2012

The vision was for a harmonious relationship between the new Compton and Edrich stands and the Media Centre between them, one which upheld the ‘Village Green’ identity which remains at the heart of Lord’s, the home of world cricket. The proposals provide a range of seating and hospitality areas, new concourses that address the Nursery Ground behind, public realm and landscaping, while increasing the stands capacity from 9,000 to 11,500 seats.

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were billed as the most sustainable ever, and the design of the Basketball Arena was an important part of the architectural mix.

London, UK

Our designs bring distinctive new architecture to Lord’s that complements the historic and contemporary context, while optimising seating provision, views and public amenities.

London, UK

The challenge was to create a temporary building that would not only be simple to erect and sustainable in terms of its post-Games legacy, but also to provide a world-class sporting venue. The solution was a structure to accommodate up to 12,000 spectators for basketball, handball and wheelchair basketball and rugby, and where two-thirds of the materials and elements could be reused or recycled after the Games.
