Ice Wharf was designed by architect Tchaik Chassay and built in 1998. The name derives from a nearby Victorian ice well. Carlo Gatti had the huge well constructed in 1857 to store tons of ice imported from Norway. The ice enabled ice-cream to be brought to Londoners for the first time. You can still view the original ice well at the London Canal Museum.
