In a street of buildings historically related to storage and manufacture, this scheme celebrates these former uses with a series of big interlocking drums of differing heights. The upper floors are 25 residential shells accessed via a Japanese-style garden above a ground floor Japanese noodle restaurant. Unusually there is a consistent elevation through all floors including terrace balustrades, the glazing for each successive floor setting back slightly, giving the effect of small telescopic gasometers.
