This week's site visit to Long Lane in LB Southwark shows work is progressing extremely well. The communal courtyard is getting new trees to grow alongside planters. The homes are also nearing completion, with just a few more finishing touches until they are ready for residents.
The scheme is expressed as two solid masses with a dark brick skin. Inhabited spaces, such as balconies and circulation areas, are then carved into it, exposing the white brickwork. Upon completion, the project will provide 21 socially rented homes and a small shop.
