The new development within Kennington Business Park comprises of three contemporary new buildings delivering just under 270,000 sqft of new work space studios and light industrial space.
With the site itself being locally listed and close to two conservation areas, the design is responsive to its context as well as taking influence from the sites rich industrial history. Conceptually each building is designed to be seen as a contemporary version of a factory building therefore mimicking some of the existing and historical building forms of the site. The new proposals are designed using traditional materials (brick and metal) in a variety of ways to add richness to the architecture.
The landscape masterplan creates a welcoming and stimulating environment for workers and the local community. The proposals will maintain the functionality and character of the current yard areas whilst adding additional planting and gardens for people to explore and utilise.
The design is strongly influenced by sustainable principles. Where possible hard materials will be maintained, re-purposed or reused, and additional planting will enhance biodiversity whilst providing opportunities for rain gardens and other sustainable urban drainage (SUD’s) features.
