SPARK bags planning for Victoria mixed-use scheme

SPARK Architects has won planning permission for its first major scheme in central London, a mixed-use development opposite Victoria Station

The nine-storey development for client AXA Real Estate, features 13,935m² of offices, shops and flats.

SPARK Architects director Max Titchmarsh said: ‘This scheme [is] an exciting opportunity to upgrade a significant building in a prominent location and create a bold new landmark’.

The project will include ‘strikingly articulated facades’ and a remodelled entrance on Wilton Road, directly opposite the station. Its top three floors will contain 14 new open-plan apartments.

The scheme follows the architect’s unveiling of its first project in Africa last month (April 2014) - an 18-storey residential tower in Lagos, Nigeria (AJ 17.04.14).
