The Stratford has been named a finalist in the 2020 RIBA Regional Awards. The tower, which combines a five-star hotel with apartments, was included on the East London shortlist.
For the 42-story tower, SOM's integrated team of architects and engineers focused on the idea of a vertical community that would promote social interaction and reflect the area's diversity. The Stratford's double-cantilevered massing allows for the incorporation of three sky gardens in which residents can meet and interact. These gardens provide a range of shared open spaces that overlook the London skyline.
