Alsop Architects

  • Comment

Alsop Architects has lost out in its bid to build a colourful new mixed-use building next to its award-winning Peckham Library after Southwark council chose a 'more appropriate'scheme by Hudson Featherstone instead.

Southwark councillors said that the winning leisure and residential design, from preferred developer Baylight Properties, 'would better reflect the wishes and needs of people who lived in Peckham and accommodate the demand for additional leisure and community space.' And in something of a put-down to Alsop, it said its design 'better complemented nearby Peckham Library'. Hudson Featherstone's scheme (above) is for a 10-storey inclined tower facing Peckham Arch, forming an edge to the square and incorporating a camera obscura and plasma screen for advertising local events and art projects. The project also includes cafes, bars, a performance venue, community radio station and studio space,46 residential units and 1,450m 2of offices.
