Watermark Place Timber Structure

The Watermark Place site encapsulates London?s historic role in the international maritime trade. The line of the Roman Wharf marks the northern edge, the medieval Hanseatic settlement of Steelyard is to the west and the existing river wall defines the south. A robust five storey timber structure shades the riverside buildings and acts as a dramatic backdrop to a new sunny public square. It is a direct reference to the extraordinary maritime history of this section of the river. It can carry lights, banners and sound systems to enable and encourage street theatre.
