Michael Grubb Studio has been appointed by globally integrated and recognised real estate group Lendlease to create the lighting design scheme for £3.5b Silvertown development, a vibrant new community situated in the heart of London’s Royal Docks.
Silvertown is at the heart of the regeneration of London’s Royal Docks and will become a waterside destination for people to live, work, and socialise. Around 6000-6500 new homes will be built, as well as many spaces for local talent to work and network. It will embrace East London’s vibrant and creative future.
The regeneration of Silvertown is being led by Lendlease and Starwood Capital. Michael Grubb Studio will work in collaboration with these partners, as well as other key stakeholders across the project.
Having successfully worked on the lighting strategy for the scheme in 2019, Michael Grubb Studio was commissioned to create the sitewide masterplan for the entire development. The team is currently developing the detailed public realm lighting design for Phase 1.1.
The wider team includes Prior and Partners, AHMM, dRMM, Pollard Thomas Edwards and Maccreanor Lavington. Arup are advising on transport, Aecom on infrastructure and West 8 and Churchman Thornhill Finch on landscape.
The finished scheme is expected to generate thousands of jobs, as well as contribute to the wider regeneration of an important part of East London. It has an estimated end development value of £3.5billion.
