Project: New 102,730 sq.ft. Sainsbury’s foodstore with 60,000 sq.ft. sales area and 400 undercroft parking spaces with double height glazed entrance lobby incorporating vertical circulation with a large overhanging roof supported on a slender colonnade as a key design feature.
Materials include the use of an external stone veneer with limestone external finish which plays homage to the adjoining abbey ruins, together with timber and aluminium cladding. The scheme also included a naturalised green riverside bank created in consultation with the Environmental Agency to deliver a pleasant riverside walkway promoting wildlife and the ecological value of this area of the centre of Barking.
