REGENERATION SCHEME ON HIGGS INDUSTRIAL ESTATE NEAR HERNE HILL
Loughborough Junction, London
Project Name: Herne Hill
Location: Loughborough Junction, London
Sector: Urban Design
Services: Architecture and planning
Type: New build
Area: 40,000 sq ft
We designed a multi-storey scheme with a mix of tenures, to replace the existing Industrial Estate, which is bounded on two sides by elevated railways on vaulted arches.
The secondary centre is needed, to avoid the migration of trade to retail centres such as nearby Brixton. The scheme allows for a supermarket and the other retail at ground floor, with parking above forming a podium, with residential on top.
Also on top of the podium, we designed elevated gardens, and the shape of the blocks made the most of the orientation for sunlight and created a peaceful, quiet courtyard for the residents.
