Mixed Development, Westminster Bridge Road, London
Client: Marlin Apartments
Status: Completed 2017
This mixed use development includes an apart-hotel with 218 rooms, a series of commercial office suites, a restaurant and a retail unit.
No. 111 Westminster Bridge Road is located within the Lower Marsh Conservation Area in the London Borough of Lambeth. The site is advantageously situated within close proximity to Waterloo, the City of Westminster and the South Bank.
The project aims to ensure that all aspects of the proposed building are sympathetic to the special character of the area, respecting the existing streetscape, including the adjoining Grade II Listed Necropolis building at No. 121, and the existing roof-scape. A front building of 7 storeys matches the height of the neighbouring buildings, with the building then increasing in height to 11 storey at the rear.
The restaurant & hotel front of house areas are located at ground floor level along the street and serve to activate the streetscape. The public realm is further enhanced by the adjoining retail units. The hotel rooms & serviced apartments are located from the 1st to 10th floors. The office suites are located at the lower basement levels, with a feature light void providing natural daylight and a lively work environment.
