Keith Williams gets green light for Peckham scheme

  • Comment

Keith Williams Architects’ conversion of a 1960s building in south London into homes and shops has been given the green light

Southwark Council granted planning consent for the practice’s 38-44 Rye Lane in Peckham, which will contain 27 residential units and 716m2 of retail space.

Designed for developer Reality Holdings, the scheme in the Rye Lane Conservation Area transitions in scale from two to six storeys.

The practice said: ‘The double-height columnar treatment to the main façade gives a vertical, more elegant emphasis to the composition, and while the main Rye Lane façade is continuous to give a civic scale to the main street, the same elevational rhythm is further subdivided before dropping in scale to respond to the finer architectural grain of Highshore Road. Facing materials include red brick surmounted by polished aluminium cladding to the sixth storey rooftop pavilion.’

Founder Keith Williams added: ‘I am very pleased that Southwark has approved this project on its very prominent site on Rye Lane. The new building will help contribute to the ongoing regeneration of this vibrant area, providing much needed housing within an appropriately crafted new building, which we have carefully conceived in response to its immediate and wider architectural context.’
