London-based KSR Architects has won a competition to regenerate a site on Old Kent Road in London
The mixed-use regeneration plans provide housing and commercial space while also reinstating the area’s historic ‘Ruby Triangle’ and creating public realm.
According to the practice this reconfigured public realm – which includes a new piazza – will ‘act as a catalyst for creating a cohesive community’.
The plans anticipate the new Bakerloo Line extension and stations and form the framework for a new town centre.
One of KSR’s new Partners, Guy Ailion, said: ‘We’re delighted that our enthusiasm for this project came across to the judging panel, and are excited at the opportunity to regenerate such a significant site, in terms of its historic and future importance to the area.’
