designing a contemporary wayfinding system
for a developing destination
Riverside Quarter is a prestigious residential, leisure and business development established on the banks of the River Thames. Located in the vibrant heart of Wandsworth, Riverside Quarter is home to stylish and contemporary living in South West London.
Central to Riverside Quarter’s charm are the gardens that weave throughout the neighborhood. The Piazza provides restaurants, cafes and convenience shopping whilst the various businesses that occupy some of the ground floor premises ensure there is life and bustle all day round.
Developed over number of years and several phases the site had inherited a fragmented wayfinding provision. Our strategic approach unified the whole site and created an on-brand wayfinding / placemaking system providing seamless vehicular and pedestrian navigation from site arrival through to internal residential and leisure destinations. Our bespoke information graphics and destination mapping create a sense of place, locating Riverside Quarter within its local area whilst promoting site amenities and key navigation routes.
For the latest Riverside Quarter residential development, Nine Eastfield, our wayfinding strategy has been implemented internally.
Starting from the building entrance we have used our versatile sign system ‘eva’ to present a consistent on-brand message, implemented at key internal locations to deliver a seamless wayfinding provision right up to individual front doors.
Providing underground parking, leisure facilities, concierge and porterage services, Nine Eastfields creates a luxurious urban lifestyle at the heart of one of London’s most alluring areas. The internal signage scheme continues to deliver whole development branding and a single identity.
Information planning, sign scheduling, design, specification and implementation services have been seamlessly provided for this whole scheme solution.
