Urban Yard, Lewisham
Land Securities plc
To create a vibrant new experience out of a tired run-down 1960s Shopping Centre. To ensure that this attracts the new affluent young populous moving into the borough whilst retaining the existing shoppers.
How: By stripping away dated finishes and decluttering to reveal the original urban concrete and brick structure, then adding contemporary materials, over cladding the entrances and creating 3 new contemporary squares. Rebranding the centre, ‘Urban Yard,' creating significant additional net lettable space to generate increased revenue and reinvigorate the environment.
