Live Work Houses – South London
Elephant and City Limited
Elephant and Castle, South London
Bowman Riley was appointed to undertake the tender and construction package of four live work houses in the Elephant and Castle area of London.
Due to the demolition of existing commercial units and a loss of workspace to this area of London, Southwark Council identified the need for live/work units targeted at the pioneers of home-based working. Live/work units have sprouted in urban centres across the UK and feature ground floor workspaces to stimulate small business entrepreneurism.
This project involved four live work houses built out of timber frames with external walls built from timber SIPs panels, clad in high quality brick and feature glazed green bricks.
Situated in a tight landlocked urban site, the property was designed to a high standard to emulate a modern warehouse feel with high ceilings. Due to the tight site and workspace area requirements, the building was designed over numerous levels to maximise space.
The buildings benefit from a number of sustainable features including triple glazed timber frame windows and solar PV panels on the roof.
There are a number of external terraced areas for each unit occupiers to enjoy outside space including front elevation balconies.
