Tony Fretton submits plans for Tower of London restaurant

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Tony Fretton Architects has submitted a planning application for a new riverfront restaurant close to the Grade I-listed Tower of London

Featuring a restaurant, kitchen and ancillary spaces the scheme is conceived as a ‘new place to dine on the wharf, inside and out.’

The 189m² ‘Company of Cooks’ eatery is clad in rough sawn vertical timber, chosen to blend in with the hues and tones of its Kentish Ragstone context.  

To avoid damaging the UNESCO world heritage site’s archaeological remains, the design consists of a lightweight timber structure supported on a ‘floating’ raft foundation.

The £440,000 scheme made of three buildings is part of a Historic Royal Palaces and Land Use Consultants masterplan for Tower Wharf.
