Completion Date Planning granted November 2019
Contract Value Circa £100m Masterplan
Client Lambeth College / South Bank Colleges
ArchitecturePLB worked with Peter Marsh Consulting and Lambeth College to develop a four phase masterplan for extensive redevelopment of the Vauxhall campus. The masterplan, which achieved planning consent, includes 25,000 sqm of further education floorspace, a 272 bed student residence as part of a mixed use building and 4,570 sqm of “Maker Space’ ; shared workplace / incubator units. These are brought together in a new campus with new public realm and pedestrian through-routes. ArchitecturePLB developed a design code to inform the character and quality of future phases.
As part of the hybrid planning application we also developed the detailed design for phase 1 of the masterplan, a 10,000 sqm STEAM centre, a purpose-designed building for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths which will incorporate a range of specialist teaching spaces including dental technology, construction workshops, radio and TV studios and other digital teaching spaces.
