Conran and Partners win design competition next to Waterloo Station
We have recently won a competition to develop a site next to Waterloo Station. Our design team has been appointed by the London Borough of Lambeth to develop designs and secure planning consent for the redevelopment of 114 - 118 Lower Marsh.

The team will be working with Lambeth Council over the spring and the summer to develop a flexible mixed-use scheme integrated with the local streetscape and sensitive to existing uses and independent retail within Lower Marsh. The project, once completed, will form a major contribution to the ongoing redevelopment of Lower Marsh as a lively urban environment, with high quality architecture complementing the scale and grain of the surrounding area.
The street is full of eclectic and creative shops.
We are delighted to be selected from among a strong field of competing submissions. We see this as a great opportunity to demonstrate our significant experience of designing for complex, urban settings. This is a special site with challenging physical relationships in a culturally unique setting which is full of colour, ingenuity and humour and which has an exceptional collaborative spirit. We are very much looking forward to working with Lambeth Council and others to realise a scheme which will optimise the site’s potential, while respecting and promoting the overall character of this fast-evolving area of south London.
Victoria Whenray, Director
We have recently completed a major residential development in Lambeth, Baylis Old School, Kennington, a Brutalist former secondary school. Through its involvement in this award-winning project, we have a strong understanding of the Council’s wider aspirations for the long-term development of the Borough.
