Penson reveals mixed-use scheme for south London

  • Comment
Penson Architects has unveiled its £1.5 million scheme for Radius Shipping on the Old Kent Road, south London.

Built on a narrow site that once accommodated shipping agent Radius' factory, which recently burnt down, the mixed-use scheme is 'formed of two timber-framed towers that are twisted to give the building a slightly distorted shape,' says Penson director Lee Penson.

A central copper-clad staircase will act as a focal point and give residents access to a landscaped communal garden.

Radius - which also imports architectural models into the UK - will occupy commercial space including workshops and design studio on the ground floor of the building.

The scheme is expected to go in for planning this year and construction will start early in 2008.
