Sumner Street, Southwark
Parmarbrook were appointed by Land Securities to explore redevelopment opportunities of 105 Sumner Street and 133 Park Street.
Located on Southwark Bridge Road, Sumner Street replaces a tired 1980’s warehouse and office building with two new buildings featuring a bronze anodised façade. The simple, clean volumes and carefully articulated façade recall the steel bridges and walkways that still cross many of Southwark’s narrow streets.
The form and massing of this work space scheme are a series of stepped volumes, improving the public space through and around the site, and reducing the scale of the buildings around the perimeter.
Reminiscent of the site’s former phosphor bronze factory, the façade is wrapped in an elegant ribbing of bronze anodised aluminium vertical fins.
Planning was approved in March 2017.
