Text by Matthew Turner: Two major building elements are added, a new residential tower (with open floors) is added and linked to the tall silo (with separate rooms). A horizontal live/work building is built on the dockside. A series of public spaces are created, both on the waterfront and internally on the site (at first floor level), each conceived of with different atmosphere and emphasising planting.  Underneath a large section of the area is a large car park, and over the buildings are green roofed gardens. The silo is taken up with student housing and an organic restaurant, and topped with wind turbines.
