Dollar Bay by Ian Simpson Architects

Dollar Bay in London

The proposals include a 109m tall residential tower containing 121 apartments, a gym, ground floor commercial space, and a  courtyard garden, all set within a public realm strategy that opens up the dockside walkway.

The north and south façades are narrow with the crystals separated by the recessed glazed joint of the corridor. This joint expands at the ground level allowing each crystal to appear to be resting daringly on a single point.
