This mixed use scheme revitalises a brown field site in London to provide 202 new homes and a ground level of vibrant new work space, grouped around a new courtyard.
This new public space emulates the well established live work environments of the area, and forms the start of a new pedestrian route linking to Walworth Road.
The affordable housing creates an urban boulevard with the four storey housing of the Pullens Conservation Area, as a re-interpretation of the original Victorian street form. This provides a screen to the higher rear building alongside the railway and forms a part of the transition in scale between The Elephant and Castle and Crampton Street.
Alongside the railway the design envisages a commercial street, with a broad variety of uses within the new building and the existing railway arches.
