Berkeley Homes Project

A public exhibition was held at Lambeth College on 24th, 25th and 26th October 2002 showing a new scheme on a site adjacent to Tower Bridge and the GLA City Hall. The designs show a mixed development consisting principally of ground level cultural spaces and housing. Set in a new landscape which extends Potters Fields, the urban composition consists of eight mini-towers which mediate between More London office development to the west and the smaller grain and scale of 19th century development to the south and east. Each mini-tower has a tapering elliptical form, and they are of varying heights and orientation. They are clad largely in colourless glass. The public’s views were gathered, assessed and the scheme adapted to respond to the creative and positive suggestions made. A planning application is to be made later this year.
