Adelaide Wharf Gets the Urban Edge
Adelaide Wharf on the Regent's Canal at Shoreditch provides a mix of affordable housing for key workers and private buyers. The scheme, which comprises 147 sustainable apartments around a central amenity space, features rainwater recycling, 'green' living roofs growing sedum plants which act as an effective insulator as well as attracting birds and insects, a wildflower meadow along the canal and high thermal efficiency.
The development is on track to win a coveted 'Excellent' rating from the Buildings Research Establishment's Ecohomes awards, the highest 'green' rating, and has already won ten awards including the RIBA National Award for Architecture.
Architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris specified 996 Urban Edge doorsets - some primed for on-site painting and others faced in crown cut American white oak veneer.
The Urban Edge range of high quality, bespoke, residential doorsets combines style with functionality and affordability. A wide choice of finishes and glazing panel options makes Urban Edge the perfect finishing touch for projects such as Adelaide Wharf.
Award winning architect Simon Allford said that the development is what good design is all about, “Intelligently planned spaces, high quality fittings and energy-efficient thinking. It’s a high performance living machine where nothing’s been overlooked – and with canalside and parkside views and a secluded courtyard garden the size of six tennis courts, you’ve got room to breathe”.
Urban Edge, a division of Leaderflush Shapland, the UK’s leading performance doorset manufacturer, is dedicated to providing the residential property sector with complete, cost-effective doorset solutions that help developers realise their unique design visions.
