Twickenham Riverside

Skelly & Couch are part of the winning multidisciplinary team led by Hopkins Architects which has beaten four other contenders in a RIBA competition to develop Twickenham Riverside. 

Hopkins Architects, together with Skelly & Couch and four other specialist consultants, are working with Richmond Council on the new mixed-use riverside development in the very heart of Twickenham. The project plans to create an exciting destination for both residents and visitors making the Thameside scheme a focal point for Twickenham. 

The vision is to develop the area into a thriving hub of at least 50% affordable, good quality housing as well as retail spaces, offices, facilities for public recreation and community activities and workspaces, while also seeking to reimagine the popular Diamond Jubilee Gardens. The upper levels of the two main buildings will consist of apartments ranging from studios to large 3-bedroom flats, designed to optimise daylight, natural ventilation, and river views.

Through an improved connection between the river and town, Twickenham Riverside will be a revitalised centre for everyone to enjoy.

Paul Chadwick, Director of Environment and Community Services for Richmond Council, said the Hopkins’ team designs “will not only deliver a new, revitalised Riverside, but will also drive economic improvement to the wider Twickenham Area.”
