Kyson showcases Lambeth mixed-use development

  • 1 Comment

Architect Kyson has released new images of its mixed-use scheme for a prominent corner site in south London.

Its Waterloo Road development in Lambeth will replace a bookshop and betting office and two other shops with a largely five-storey building that steps down to three storeys.

Work on the scheme, which includes nine apartments, approximately 1,000m2 of office space, and 400m2 of retail space, is due to start in March next year (2015).

Kyson said the stone, brick and glass design was a ‘careful yet dramatic intervention’ that mediated between the distinct characters of Waterloo Road - where the building is adjacent to the Old Waterloo Fire Station, and Lower Marsh, which has narrow Victorian terraces.

It said: ‘By undergoing a number of folds, the main façade picks out the lines of its grade II listed neighbour and ensures that the development acts as a sympathetic frame of reference’.

Kyson obtained planning permission for the development in conjunction with Rolfe Judd Planning.

The client for the development is The Estate Office Shoreditch.

  • It would be interesting to see the character of the original buildings on this street corner - to see whether the new building is an improvement, or whether it coarsens the urban fabric.
