Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands bags planning for Fulham Wharf masterplan

[First look + plans + project data] Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has won permission for this 3.2 hectare residential and retail development in Fulham, south London

Featuring a 7,300m² supermarket and 463 homes, the project for Sainsbury’s and developer Helical Bar is expected to start on site early next year.

The project transforms a derelict industrial area known as Fulham Wharf and will retain the existing ‘saw tooth’ facade and roofline of an historic warehouse building.

Paul Sandilands of Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands explained: ‘The regeneration at Fulham Wharf is a fantastic opportunity to transform a neglected Thames-side area into a vibrant centre of local life.

‘Our design for Helical Bar and Sainsbury’s departs from the conventional approach for open site mixed use development; a range of smaller scale buildings and public spaces are used to wrap the retail, parking and servicing areas, creating a scale and variety at ground level that convincingly connects the adjacent urban grain with the riverside frontage.’

The scheme – which CABE used as an ‘exemplar’ for supermarket-led development – was approved by local authority Hammersmith & Fulham Council.
