A linear mixed use block adjacent to a railway line
This scheme is a residential led mixed-use development comprising of replacement industrial space and 130 flats up to sixteen storeys.
The site is part of an emerging Old Kent Road Area Action Plan which required replacement of the existing industrial use. Careful design of the new industrial space (B1c) was required in close collaboration with Southawark and the GLA. The site is in close proximity to a railway line and has comes with some challenging environmental conditions such as noise and vibration.
The proposal addresses these concerns with a flexible commercial spaces at ground and first floor levels with large commercial lifts and tall floor to ceiling heights. The narrowness of the site has been taken advantage of with a high level of dual aspect flats or single aspect flats that are east or west facing with a shallow footprint.
The scheme is high density and this was achieved by demonstrating the schemes high quality.
