STORY__

This ambitious new development provides over 100 much-needed homes – over 50% of which are affordable – in the heart of Bermondsey. A generous new public realm and through-routes link the main residential development with a smaller, family-unit block to the north and a new specialist school to the east.

The school is given pride of place within the site and a prominent street-facing location, with all windows to teaching spaces on a quieter pedestrian-only route.

To the main road at ground floor level are two new retail units, providing active frontage along a prominent streetscape which has long lacked activitiy.
