YEAR 2014 - Ongoing
As one of a series of towers emerging along the Vauxhall
skyline, this design seeks to maximize the value of a very small
site, whilst providing a new sculptural high rise typology.
The site lies adjacent to a series of brick railway arches as
well as Damien Hirst's new gallery. The repositioning of the area
as cultural has helped to encourage a more creative approach to
architecture. aLL Design's proposal is an organic form which swells
out from its base to a height of 15 storeys for residential and
office use, intended for artist studios. It would be constructed
from sprayed concrete with punched holes revealing inset balconies.
The concrete would have a sparkled finish to catch the light, with
the reveals to the curved holes brightly coloured.
