The project involved the demolition of the existing petrol filling station with the decommissioning of the underground petrol storage tanks and site decontamination followed by the construction of a new mixed use building of six storeys.
The design and layout of the site has carefully taken into account the local context and site constraints. The resultant scale, massing and layout is of a high quality, creating a building which creates a suitable transition from the railway and high density town centre to more domestic scale development to the north. The external treatment creates interest and form, and ensures that the massing of the building is broken up. The project has a strong visual and functional relationship with the new Premier Inn hotel and with the major Lewisham Gateway town centre development.
