Hawkins\Brown has won the go-ahead to transform the former Watney Brewery site in Stockwell, south London into a £53 million mixed-use development.
The Bottle Store project will create private, sharedownership and social housing together with 8,300m 2 of commercial space. Most of the offices will be housed in the 1962 bottling building, which is to be reclad with a semi-translucent facade.
The warehouses on the rest of the site will be demolished to make way for almost 290 residential units. Developed with Max Fordham, the scheme will be supplied with water from two boreholes originally used by brewers in the 19th century.
