Designed by London-based Hawkins Brown Architects, the Palm House is a shared living scheme, meaning that there is an en suite room with a small kitchen, and there are large shared facilities including a cinema, large kitchen and dining spaces, and roof terraces. The design also features a large co-working space on the ground floor, with bookable meeting rooms and privacy booths.
The practice conducted extensive research into shared living typologies, which was then presented to the GLA to inform its relevant policies.
The resulting structure references Russian Constructivist architecture and features circular windows and massive brick piers.
A pleasure to shoot this unique structure.
