Varcoe Road Housing, Southwark

Southwark

Mixed-use scheme of 74 homes, 35% affordable, on a constrained site creating new car-free public realm with commercial space to suit Southwark’s Bakerloo Line extension Old Kent Road (OKR) Opportunity Area masterplan. All flats are tenure blind and exceed London space standards with big balconies and a generous communal roof terrace.

All 3-bed & 2-bed homes are dual aspect. The site layout and massing reinforces the north south urban grain of Varcoe Road and continues the lines of Pocket Living’s new housing to the north. A landscaped mews-like Lane is created along the east boundary to access the residential lobbies and commercial space.
