King’s Cross, The Gasholders, London N1C
The Gasholders London is a remarkable feat of contemporary design and cutting-edge engineering by renowned architects Wilkinson Eyre, working with Jonathan Tuckey Design on interiors and Dan Pearson Studio on landscaping. There are 145 distinct apartments and penthouses, being built within a refurbished triplet of Grade II-listed, cast-iron gasholder guide frames, next to the Regent’s Canal.
The 123 cast-iron columns frame three new apartment cylinders, linked at ground level by a glazed cloister that looks onto the central courtyard with a reflecting pool and viewing platform. External bridges at levels one, five and eight provide further connectivity and access to the beautifully landscaped communal roof gardens within Gasholder 12. A covered atrium within each cylinder provides access to the apartments and the landscaped residents’ rooftop garden and upper levels of the Gasholders offer extraordinary views across the dynamic panorama of the capital from the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf to St Paul’s Cathedral, The Shard, the London Eye and the BT Tower.
