Woods’ Silver Fleet comprises three luxury ‘river yachts’ in London for private events. Their new home on the Thames, Woods Quay, offers private charter guests a place to eat, drink, and relax while overlooking the stunning London riverscape, an inspiring passage to their awaiting boat.
Designed by Kate Woods, the building offers guests an immediate connection to the river upon entry with its open fronted reception space. Guests can enjoy the fresh air of the sheltered deck or retreat to two enclosed lounges that maintain the open feeling with glass walls and unobstructed views. Materials and colours draw from the location: terrazzo floors reflect the river’s shingle banks; a colour palette of natural greys, greens, and browns recalls the deep green, verdigris and granite grey of the embankment; and matte brass, steel, canvas and oak envelop the decks.
The enclosed lounge spaces include Saia Dining Chair, Saia Bar Stool, Welles Table, and McQueen Sofa, all designed by Matthew Hilton and crafted by De La Espada.
