New images of London's design district

 
The Spanish practices Barrozi Veiga and Selgas Cano and the British firms 6a Architects, Adam Khan Architects, Architecture 00, David Kohn Architects, HNNA, and Mole Architects designed a total of sixteen buildings now under construction in London’s new Design District, set in the heart of Greenwich Peninsula. The 1-hectare complex of work spaces for the creative community is located close to the Millennium Dome of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

Each of the teams named above designed two buildings with no inkling of the rest of the projects, and the result is a mix of styles in a public sphere planned and unified by the Danish company Schulze + Grassov. One of the schemes by Architecture OO features a rooftop multi-sport court.

Scheduled for opening in September 2020, the Design District is part of Knight Dragon, a larger development that is being planned by Allies and Morrison.
