Three variations of Proteus HR panels VM Quartz (grey) and VM Anthra (black) in zinc and polyester powder coated aluminium in anthracite grey feature as rainscreen cladding elements on the first two phases of Greenwich Wharf.
The vibrant new quarter comprises 667 residential units in eight buildings, 44,000ft2 of office space, a hotel, studio workshops, retail units and sports facilities, all set around four beautifully landscaped gardens reminiscent of those at the Old Royal Naval College.
Master planner architects Squire & Partners material strategy also reflected the trade and raw goods historically associated with the wharfs granite, lead, slate, brick, timber and the zinc of two of the Proteus panel systems which have been installed vertically. Phase 1 comprised 267 mixed-tenure homes and Phase 2 273 one to three-bedroomed luxury residences, the largest in Royal Greenwich, with penthouse units at the top of each of the blocks which sit at right angles to a dramatic bend in the river.
Here, the Proteus HR panels in grey and black zinc complement areas of full-length glazing while the dark grey PPC panels sit more discreetly in between balconies overlooking the River Thames.
