This development showcases PTE’s skills at ‘visible mending’ of the urban fabric, mixing 270 new homes with a range of employment and community spaces. A new urban quarter is created on a redundant depot site, incorporating a railway viaduct and restored heritage buildings. The former Bathing Hall, Coroner’s Court and the railway arches are all converted into workspace and apartments.

The complex and previously impenetrable site is reconnected with the surrounding streets, allowing public circulation through the site and convenient access to local transport and Walworth High Street shops. Pedestrian and cycle routes alongside the arches contribute to Southwark’s aspirational ‘low-line’ link to the river. The landscape strategy reinforces these connections and provides a variety of shared surfaces and open spaces, including three play areas for young children.

PTE provided a full service from concept to planning.
