NEWS IN PICTURES

Glas Architects has won planning permission for this 164-unit residential scheme on Southwark Bridge Road in south London.

Located on a triangular industrial site, it includes 62 affordable housing units, with eight four-bedroom social rented houses and 2,000m 2 of commercial space. According to the architect, the design adds 'coherence' to the characteristics of the surrounding urban landscape. Three key elements inform the scheme: terraced social housing; a landscaped 'sunken' garden; and the 'folded form' of residential units above. Glas director Nazar Sayigh added that the transparent facades of ground-oor commercial space 'will bring life, vitality and a much-needed boost to local services, offering interaction at street level'.
