Planning consent for project in Peckham


Southwark Council has given the go ahead for a new mixed-use building forming part of the Ruby Street Triangle on Old Kent Road, London SE15.

The site for Acorn Commercial Ltd is located on a prominent junction between Ruby Street, Murdock Street and the Old Kent Road and comprises 111 new homes, with over 2000sqm of work space, retail and café uses and the reprovision of an existing church and community facility. The new church and community facilities will help attract new users and increase their social outreach programme, which includes youth work, child care, after school clubs, adult education and help for the homeless.

Our proposal provides a robust masonry building that responds to the existing and emerging character of the Old Kent Road. A three storey plinth responds to the scale of lower existing buildings, creating an intimate streetscape on Ruby Street. A stepping, faceted tower, rises to 22 storeys, part of an emerging cluster of taller buildings within the context of the Ruby Triangle scheme.
