Shelter is one of mans most basic needs and the progression of its development over time has had to deal with an ever increasingly complex world that even now places renewed demands on the way we build, live, and work.

The location of the site is at Kew Bridge, London, United Kingdom. It is at the important landmark junction of Kew Bridge north circular road and Kew Bridge road, with the immediate context consisting of 3 to 4 storey high built fabric to the north and west boundaries of the site. The Kew Bridge road slipway forms the eastern boundary of the site adjacent Kew Bridge, and the River Thames forms the southern boundary of the site.

The aim of the project is to evaluate the existing condition of high-rise residential developments and to compare this to leading environmentally sensitive projects, which utilise sustainable development strategies and renewable energy sources. These strategies and energy sources will be applied in the residential high-rise typology in the form of the Kew Bridge Urban Village.
