Description

Lewisham: on the up!

Local RIBA group, South East London Society of Architects (SELSA) are holding a Pre-Christmas get-together on Thursday 15th December to provide an opportunity for SELSA members plus architects in Southwark and Bromley to meet prior to planned restructuring of the London regional branches in 2017. The event will include presentations by the development and design team of Lewisham Gateway, a major new project underway in central Lewisham. The event is free to attend, and includes some refreshment. Pre-registration is essential.

Major construction is underway at the heart of Lewisham, where the DLR, mainline and bus stations conjoin. Lewisham Gateway is a high-density mixed-use development reconfiguring the infrastructure and road layouts to improve pedestrian links with the High Street and transform a large roundabout with new public spaces and buildings comprising retail, leisure, office and residential. This includes a new public park celebrating the confluence of the Quaggy and Ravensborne Rivers, a key feature of the site. The first phase of the development, has been designed by PRP, and was shortlisted for the Build to Rent Development of the year. The second phase of design is underway by UNstudio.

This event brings together presentations from the developer, architects and local planning department appointed Design Review Panel to describe the vision for the entire urban development, its procurement, and the collaborative process behind the evolution of its design. Those arriving via Lewisham Station will be able to see the early stage of development close by.
