Maritime View

A Vision for the Royal Borough of Greenwich

In collaboration with The Manser Practice, Glass Canvas produced an informative promotional film and crafted some beautiful renders to market a planned residential vision at London's first dedicated international cruise terminal.

Client: Morgan Stanley
Collaborators: JLL, GQ Design & The Manser Practice

Featuring residential accommodation; the final design represented a sympathetic redevelopment of Enderby House & increased public realm with a riverside park & viewing deck.

The site was also have a river bus berth linking the development to central London.

The scheme is located in Enderby Wharf, fittingly named after Samuel Enderby, an 18th Century maritime explorer.

The final design consisted of 263 new residential units, arranged in slender towers, above a potential purpose built cruise terminal & associated drop-off zone - London City Cruise Port.

Designed to accommodate medium size cruise ships from around the world, the terminal in Greenwich was expected to accommodate 55 cruise ships annually.

In addition to the marketing CGIs, a two-minute promotional film including aerial video, compositing & location footage was produced - watch the film below.

The architects commented that...‘the façade concept for the whole site has been inspired by the industrial history of the site & its importance in the development & manufacture of the Atlantic Cable’.
