‘A developed’ schemePublished Thursday, 15th November 2012
Lancaster Street received planning approval from Southwark Council with councilors stating that the quality of the design and proposal out weighed the retention of the existing warehouse building.
The scheme accommodates 39 residential units across two former photographic warehouse sites. The proposals have been designed to respect and makes contextual references to provide a modern residential development.
Site A plays with its juxtaposition between internal and external spaces, bringing the external environment within the building from entrance foyer and access balconies. All the dwellings are dual aspect with their own private and shared amenity spaces.
Site B repeats the existing dominant mass on the site, but is set back from the site boundary to provide greater privacy to its neighbours and amenity space to ground floor units.
The building mass has been designed to fi t in with the local environment with set backs to respect overlooking distances. This has resulted in a design that is comfortably sits within the streetscape.
