Private housing in Southwark


The scheme accommodates 39 flats split across two sites which were former warehouses and offices for Colorama. The scheme has been designed to provide an active street frontage and gardens to all the streets. The main entrances to the flats are retained from Library Street, and open onto landscaped gardens through which the flats are accessed.

Entrances have been recessed further into the plan to create a natural landmark to the building, a coherent relationship with the streetscape and create an identity for the development.

The buildings have been designed to set back on the upper levels to respect overlooking and light angles to neighbouring properties. Privacy has further been respected by the introduction of recessed balconies to the majority of the dwellings. The development was highly commended by the Evening Standard Awards 2016
