Designs by Landolt + Brown for a new square and other public realm improvements at Peckham Rye Station in south London have been submitted to planners
The scheme, which has been commissioned by London Borough of Southwark, will see refurbished railway arches and a two storey roof extension to an art deco building.
Existing arcade building located between railway arches will be demolished as part of the scheme which will create a new shopping area.
Adam Brown, co-founder of Landolt + Brown, said: ‘From the outset we have collaborated with artist Wendy Hardie to develop an entirely place-specific design approach which draws its creative inspiration from Peckham’s wonderfully diverse community and its rich architectural heritage, to form a new space in front of the station which reflects Rye Lane’s diversity, as well as providing a focus for a range of local trader and community activities in the heart of the town centre.’
The proposed development evolved through a series of workshops held during which Landolt + Brown engaged with more than 600 residents.
The design of the roof is ‘deliberately sculptural and eye-catching, with an architectural character that reflects the light-industrial character of many of the buildings set back from Rye Lane,’ according to a planning statement submitted with the application.
