Life3A embarked on the brand building and development of Riverstone’s’ first later living project in the UK
- Riverstone Living’s first later living community in London.
- Providing an exceptional amenity, health and longevity offering.
- Creating a new typology for later living and raising the bar in quality and service.
- Working within an existing approved residential design and creating the Riverstone product within the constraints of the approval.
To deliver the Riverstone brief, within the boundaries of the existing consent, whilst providing a design that catered for the residents changing health requirements and aspirational amenity offering. Located on the bank of the river Thames in London the site is a unique blend of urban living, with easy access to central London, whilst creating a safe environment that is aspirational and inspirational.
To create beautifully designed high-end apartments and amenity spaces that appealed to the demographic and embed our ageing better design principles. Creating a synergy between the inside and out, working with the internal amenity spaces and the landscaping whilst allowing for connectivity and legibility with the design.
Our solution was to ensure that the project responded to the surrounding environment whilst respecting the residents’ needs at a macro and micro level allowing them to connect with the local surroundings, in a safe respectful manner. The apartments have been designed to allow for ageing in place in a distinct inspirational setting befitting of the location. The seamless connectivity of the apartments with the amenity areas and the River provides an exciting backdrop for the residents to enjoy. The creation of the breathtaking lower ground floor amenity spaces with the clever use of lightwells and voids, adds to the level of sophistication and quality of the building.
Creating an exceptional later living offering next to the River Thames in London, raising the bar in terms of quality and design and setting a new benchmark for later living.
