Benoy announces work on the iconic Silvertown area of East London.
The award-winning international firm of Architects, Masterplanners, Interior and Graphic Designers, has been appointed to the Silvertown development to help build up and drive further economic investment to this historic area that was once one of the most important trade centres of the British Empire including the iconic Millennium Mills, a former major flour mill.
Silvertown is planned to become once more a thriving economic centre, but now for new technology & creative industries – and a destination place to live, work and play.
Benoy is advising the Silvertown Partnership on the development of their Architectural Brand Strategy; a crucial component in generating the high level of commercial interest for which this major venture is aiming to attract.
Working alongside the developer, Benoy is devising a plan which will encourage globally celebrated brands to an enterprising and exciting environment, uniting civic, cultural and commercial components.
