Client: Lambeth Council
Architect: Conran + Partners
114 – 118 Lower Marsh in Lambeth is a former bombed out plot that previously housed a local library in a series of portacabins. The Library was moved in 2016 to a permanent location and the premises taken over to become the Waterloo Job Shop.
The proposal designed with Conran + Partners and working in collaboration with Lambeth Council will create a new heart for the local community and expand the use of the existing space. A new 5 storey building has been proposed which will fit sympathetically within the streetscape, but also opens up access to the arches and theatre behind, to create a new vibrant square. The development will provide a permanent home to community groups and will offer retail, café and small office units. The rent generated from the development will ultimately provide Lambeth Council with a long term sustainable income from the site.
