The material palette will imbue the building with a sense of gravitas; with inherent qualities of durability and longevity which are particularly important for a building in this prominent location
The redevelopment of a key corner site in Bermondsey into a confident 3 storey brick building with 8 residential units and a ground floor retail offer.
A confident 3 storey building that derives its character from the rich built heritage of the area.
The project involves the partial demolition of an existing retail unit and ancillary retail accommodation (Use Class A1) on the site of 116 Tower Bridge Road, and the redevelopment of the site involving change of use to 8 residential units (Class C3) and 153 sqm of commercial (Use Class A1/A3) floorspace.
The site is in the Bermondsey Street conservation area and the buildings to the east are listed 17th century cottages. The height and massing of the building has been purposely designed to respond to both the domestic scale of the listed terrace on Grange Walk and also to reflect the taller and more dominant architecture of Tower Bridge Road.
The proposal is a robust brick building within which are a series of metal-framed openings providing light into the residential apartments. The façade composition aims to recollect the rhythm and material palette of Bermondsey façades and the local surrounding context.
