Construction has begun on the Royal Wharf Pier, a new riverboat terminal, designed by London-based architects Nex. The 130m long pier, located in Ballymore and Oxley’s Royal Wharf development in London’s Royal Docks, will be the most distinctive pier on the Thames, offering a unique perspective on the river from a 162m2 viewing platform, and marking the practice’s first major venture into infrastructure.
Nex were commissioned following an invited competition in 2016 and were selected for their innovative response to the site’s unusual constraints, creating a solution that harnesses infrastructure as an integral part of valuable public realm. As a result, Royal Wharf Pier uses strikingly contemporary design to replace an existing derelict jetty, addressing the practical requirements of MBNA Thames Clippers’ traffic while also providing a unique and generous public space that can be enjoyed by all.
