Camberwell, South London


CSA’s urban design team prepared an Urban Design Appraisal to guide the redevelopment of a brownfield site at Camberwell in south London. The appraisal included a robust and thorough analysis of the site and its context in order to establish a framework of urban design considerations to be addressed by the architects preparing the detailed design proposals.

The Urban Design Appraisal was submitted in support of the planning application, which comprises 163 residential units, live-work accommodation and 1,900 sq.m of flexible commercial floor space. The proposals for the site included the conversion of a historic former factory building and the construction of new buildings up to 9 storeys in height.
