Bermondsey Square

Value: £28.5m
Client: Igloo Regeneration
Construction: mid-2004
Munkenbeck+Marshall project, Stephen Marshall Partner in charge

This project involves the creation of a new heart in Bermondsey. A group of buildings surrounds the historic antiques market. The mix of uses includes apartments, offices, cinema (internal and external), a 100-room hotel, restaurant and bars. A driving force in the scheme is a practical sustainability strategy. The square is lit from above with giant chandeliers and the elevations of adjacent buildings are clad in monoflex artwork.
