a new mixed-use creative quarter reinstating the Chelsea Creek, creating a new focal point for the community
At a strategic bend in the River Thames, where the long straight stretch of the embankment bends south, the meandering creek connects into the network of streets.
The site sits exactly where the creek meets this victorian grid of streets.
The site, shown in a red outline, is approximately 9,000sqm. Of this, approximately 5,800sqm could be built on.
The creek is a hidden opportunity lying within the dense development of the area, to root new buildings within a sense of place.
The bridge over the creek should be a landmark, connecting the landscape with the new uses.
Key to the character of Lots Road are the employment uses, such as Worlds End Studios, the Auction House as well as the Heatherley School of Fine Art.
Draft capacity study based on the typology of the courtyard arrangement of Worlds End Studios, located just opposite.
Each floor level shown here consists of approximately 3,500sqm.
