Sienna House
 

Sienna House is part of the Royal Wharf development near the Thames Barrier in East London. The block includes 120 apartments over 11 storeys.

In order to break down the scale of the block to a more human scale the design uses a ‘giant order’, an element stretched over multiple floors, a device commonly used in the architecture of Georgian London.

Fluted terracotta elements span three floors to form a 'giant order'.

The visual impact of the stretched balcony is reinforced by switching the balcony position for each band.Balconies are also oriented to the south to maximise views of the Thames.
