Baca Architects and the Waterstudio are international award-winning architects and waterfront designers who specialise in designing buildings on, in, near and under water. They collaboratively work under one brand called ‘Built On Water’.
Set to have a distinctive presence on the Thames with eight diamond shaped castellated buildings, Royal Reach Marina comprises a 300-key boutique hotel, luxurious waterfront dining rooms and a clubhouse. The facility has up to 80 berths for boats and state of the art floating villas.
The rejuvenated marina blends sustainability and luxury to create an iconic luxury destination. The façades create a series of cascading hanging gardens which increase the ecological footprint of the site and enhance the riverside setting. Water from the marina and Thames acts like a blue battery- a renewable sourcethat reduces heating and cooling loads.
