[First look + plans + project data] Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has won permission for this 3.2 hectare residential and retail development in Fulham, south London
The project transforms a derelict industrial area known as Fulham Wharf and will retain the existing ‘saw tooth’ facade and roofline of an historic warehouse building.
Paul Sandilands of Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands explained: ‘The regeneration at Fulham Wharf is a fantastic opportunity to transform a neglected Thames-side area into a vibrant centre of local life.
‘Our design for Helical Bar and Sainsbury’s departs from the conventional approach for open site mixed use development; a range of smaller scale buildings and public spaces are used to wrap the retail, parking and servicing areas, creating a scale and variety at ground level that convincingly connects the adjacent urban grain with the riverside frontage.’
