Brief

With the demand to find buildable land in London increasing, we find that industrial sites are becoming a developer’s dream. This unique site set in Walworth, London, has two access points and is currently used as a B8 (open storage).

The client came to us with the ambition to maximise the site’s potential by undertaking a feasibility study to analyse the constraints of the site and determine the number of residential units achievable.

Our combination of development sketches and 3D visualisations helped the client as well as the case officer to really grasp the massing of the proposal and the design impact on the surrounding neighborhood. When taking on large or small schemes, we take care to understand the site history and its context adapting our design accordingly to later provide convincing proposals suitable to put forward to the Council.

Our Solution

Our initial feasibility study and SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Strengths) enabled us to consider all of the site’s positive and negative attributes in order to further consider the proposal, giving us confidence that any proposal we put forward would be suitable to put forward to Southwark Council.

An initial proposal envisioned two separate residential blocks, with a shared green space and courtyard in the centre, further giving life to the area by improving public access, providing green spaces for residents, and increasing biodiversity of the pre-existing, industrialised site.

Within the two blocks, we proposed a total of 36 apartments, varying from studios to 3 bedroom flats, thus providing residential accommodation for a mixture of young individuals to through to growing families.

Summary of Works

Unfortunately, this development did not go forward due to a change in circumstances with our client, however, with a successful pre-application and feasibility study, we are confident that we can help you, not only residential extensions & one-off homes, but also large development opportunities and value engineering!

Thank you.
