A great looking conversion in an up and coming part of the Brockley renaisance. The proposed artists gallery will underpin the cultural integrity of the region. The tubes arrival will also help1

Michael Trentham Architects win planning for Brockley Cross regeneration 

The project involves the dramatic conversion and extension of a disused tea and coffee factory built in the late 1940’s. The proposal is a mixed use scheme creating 1440m2 of commercial/residential space consisting 4 commercial units at ground floor, to help provide more pedestrian interest and activity at street level, and 13 residential units above. The corner commercial unit will be a café, with the largest unit let to the council rent free for two years for use as a gallery to encourage local artists, as part of the section 106 Agreement. The cantilevered element interlocks with a cedar clad shingle element above, set back from the street. Work is expected to begin late summer with completion expected early 2008.
