The proposed redevelopment of Valmar Trading Estate will provide a new urban hub and a ‘Place to belong’ within Camberwell. Whilst contemporary and artistic in its design, it sits comfortably within its town centre designation and responds sensitively to the existing heritage on site.
Versatile and creative uses will be provided on site, with commercial and employment floor space provided in the form of artists’ studios, meeting rooms, photography studios, event space and an art inspired hotel of 134 bedrooms.
Whilst the hotel will provide artistic and creative influences in the area, a sense of place and home will be created through 47 high quality residential dwellings in Block A and B which positively contribute to LB Southwark’s and London’s housing need.
The proposed homes will be of a high standard of accommodation with generous internal areas and external private amenity spaces. Careful consideration through the design process has ensured that there is no negative impact on surrounding properties.
