Riverlight is a family of six pavilions, rising in height, all with a north-south orientation. their unique design – featuring prow like ends, floor to ceiling glazing and inverted balconies – aims to let in daylight, maximising views of both the river and the surrounding city. the result is a design both practically and aesthetically sophisticated.
Innovatively, the majority of the development is devoted to outdoor space, carrying the concept of light and waterfront access throughout the entire scheme. With a choice of apartments from suites to three-bedroom penthouses, riverlight offers a wide range of accommodation with a vibrant mix of leisure and retail facilities at street level.
Created by world-renowned architects Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners. Riverlight consists of six modern and elegant pavilions that have been specifically designed to maximise the sunlight within and optimise the views out.
Over 75% of the development is dedicated to open space with the riverfront visible and accessible between each and every building. It offers a riverside walkway and park, private gardens and water features.
An exclusive residents’ Clubhouse offers a unique ‘third space’ between home and work which to socialise, exercise and be entertained, from a private screening room to virtual golf facilities; a residents club lounge and library and a 15m swimming pool, state-of-the-art gymnasium and spa.
Large double-height lobbies feature at the building’s entrance. These lead to smaller more personal floors, with no more than seven apartments per floor, accessed by glass –walled elevators that are placed on the outside of each building offering spectacular views of the River and across London.
Riverlight offers a wide range of accommodation with a vibrant mix of leisure and retail facilities at street level, including café’s, bar and restaurant and a crèche.
The residents’ at Riverlight will benefit from a courtesy service that will run every weekday rush hour between the development and Vauxhall Underground and mainline Stations.
