bptw bags planning for Greenwich town centre overhaul
[First look + plans] bptw architects has won planning permission for this mixed-use overhaul of Greenwich town centre
The locally-based practice has won the go-ahead for plans to extend Greenwich’s Up The Creek comedy club and replace an existing building with new housing and retail.
The scheme for developer Family Mosaic close to Cutty Sark DLR station features three blocks containing 83 homes and 1,800m² of commercial space.
Commenting on the project, bptw partner Andy Heath said: ‘Each building responds to its specific location in scale and detail and the main façade along Creek Road subtly incorporates façade and window proportions found within the rich architectural heritage of historic Greenwich.
‘To the rear, the neglected and run down lane will be transformed into an intimate mews dramatically animated by a rhythm of building elements which cantilever out over the pavement.
‘A fundamental principle of the design was to generate a series of entrances into apartment buildings as well as numerous duplex homes and family houses which are distributed along the length of the mews creating a truly vibrant residential quarter.’
The project is expected to start on site early next year.
