A brownfield site in South London has been transformed by this bold mixed-use development, providing 202 new homes and a series of vibrant new work spaces, grouped around a central courtyard.
This reflects the surrounding urban pattern with its Victorian live/work units and associated courtyards. In response to the tall four storey housing of the Pullens Conservation Area opposite, a new five storey terrace forms a screen to a taller linear building to the rear, that curves in to follow the adjacent railway, reducing in height from nine storeys at the north end of the site to seven storeys at the south. Balconies, of varying depths and colours provide the apartments with generous amenity space whilst offering a sense of individuality within a coherent overall pattern.
