International Quarter London (IQL)’s will build two new residentail buildings (S1 and S11) at the heart of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. These are currently in the early design stage and will complement the existing neighbourhood of Glasshouse Gardens.
The vision for these two new buildings is “to create a distinctive and active northern entrance to IQL”. Seen together the buildings will form an active square inviting people into IQL, to explore the “spine” that runs through it.Key Project Objectives
The new building will relate to their surrounding environment and to the guiding principals of the local masetrplan. In particular they will embody:
The residential buildings proposed for the northern end of the IQL site on plots S1 and S11 are at an early design stage. The design team will follow the established masterplan principles, and consider specific site constraints that will influence the design of both buildings.
