A former business village containing an incandescent gas mantle factory is transformed into a unique and sustainable new quarter of Wandsworth by Workspace Group and Mount Anvil. The masterplan design was led by the dual desires to create a bold new place and to truly embed this place within its community. This was achieved through the contemporary design and by creating new pedestrian routes to bring local activity throughout the development.
Following extensive consultation, a visionary masterplan was created with a truly integrated mixed-use scheme. The Light Bulb is the workspace element of the development, designed to attract a youthful and dynamic SME business community. The Filaments is high quality affordable and private housing. When it completes, Buckhold Road will proved 77 further residences in a 20 storey tower. Each element is designed with its own distinct identity, with all assimilated into a unique contemporary development that makes a big impression.
The residential accommodation includes a landmark 16 storey tower, two stacked cuboids stand proud against the sky glowing bright white with views embracing all points of the compass. This dramatic presence is accentuated by meticulous detailing and a carefully selected mix of materials, box-framed windows build on the theme. Recessed balconies, in some cases shared between homes, ensure that every resident, regardless of their type of housing, is able to enjoy the varied aspects.
