nimtim’s first mixed use project is a contemporary, playful building in Peckham that respects and responds to existing and future context through the use of high quality materials that complement those already used in the area. It was important to establish a visual separation of the two uses - residential and commercial, and to consider the facing materials particularly at street level.
For the residential the incorporation of large openings ensures maximum light while outdoor space is provided by balconies and a large communal roof terrace.
The scheme is one of the first to be approved within the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area. The Old Kent Road Action Plan is to be formally adopted in early 2019 and nimtim consulted extensively with Southwark’s development and design team to ensure that the proposal conforms with the ambitions and design guidance of the new masterplan.
