South-east London-based Project 35 English and Konu Architects has won planning permission for these two residential developments in the depressed London area of Thamesmead.
The projects represent a fresh attempt to regenerate a place which has become synonymous with the classic cult film A Clockwork Orange
The two schemes, for the Gallions' Housing Association, were commissioned to act as landmarks for a major thoroughfare.
One of the schemes is on the site of an old boilerhouse, while the other will replace a redundant boxing club. Together they will provide 109 new residential units.
'Together, the developments hold the potential to form a new edge to the southbound carriageway of Carlisle Road,' director Sue Konu said. 'This is an opportunity to create two new striking urban statements that will signal regeneration in Thamesmead.' by Ed Dorrell
