ABOUT RIVERSIDE HOUSE:
Riverside House stands tall in the Woolwich area and provides contrast to the modern flats that are quickly popping up along the riverside.
The building is compromised of 14 floors and was constructed in 1963. Primarily it has been used by HM Revenue and Customs. In 2017 the building was sold by Greenwich Council, it is speculated by local journalists that the building could be used for low-income residential purposes though it is more likely that the building will be demolished due to it being regarded as an 'eye sore' with it's dated and almost brutal appearance... or re-used for office space in the future.
For now, this ever interesting space is inhabited by SET, an arts organisation and registered charity, turning the vacant building into vibrant artist studios. Floor 8 is used as an events, exhibition and filming location (managed by SET).
