Eastern and Oriental (E&O) have shown their plans for the site of Landmark House and Thames Tower in Hammersmith – a Rogers Stirk Harbour designed28 storey tower development.
The site is currently home to Landmark House and the vacant Thames Tower office buildings, both of which, say E&O, are tired, outdated and offer no architectural engagement with their surrounding environment. E&O bought the site in 2015 having been attracted by the excellent location and an opportunity to improve the architecture and public realm.
Located on the border of Hammersmith Town Centre, the site marks an important transition between the residential landscape to the west, the retail district of King Street to the north and the more substantially scaled transport hub of Hammersmith Broadway to the east.
E&O say their designs look to reconnect with the wider town centre through substantial public realm and landscaping improvements, together with a new cultural space.
The plans include a new high-quality hotel, as well as new office space, and involve demolishing the 14-storey Landmark House and 11-storey Thames Tower buildings.
The plans offer the potential for a new cultural offer, and a top floor restaurant and/or bar.
