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. A new business centre designed to attract a youthful and dynamic SME business community sits directly alongside new high quality, affordable and private housing. Retail, café and community facilities on the main pedestrian routes to the local park and shopping centre encourage people into and through the development. The scheme demonstrates that high density and high-quality living can be successfully provided in the same space, as a dynamic and busy working environment.
The Light Bulb is the workspace element of the development and The Filaments is residential. Bronze is a 20 storey tall building which will provide 77 further residences. Each element is designed with its own distinct identity, with all assimilated into a unique contemporary development.
