Native Land Appoints Four Architects To Develop Designs For Bankside Yards

Architectural designs called for Eastern Yards, part of a new riverside neighbourhood in London’s Bankside.

Native Land has appointed four major international architectural practices to develop designs for four buildings within Eastern Yards, part of the £1 billion Bankside Yards mixed-use development, in Bankside, London SE1.

Eastern Yards, on the former Sampson House site, makes up 550,000 sq ft of the 1.4m sq ft Bankside Yards development, and comprises five buildings in total. The site, which was granted a new planning consent earlier this year, will include 341 homes, 70,000 sq ft of workspace, approximately 1.5 acres of public open space and 8,000 sq ft of cultural space.

PLP Architecture will work on designs for Building 5, the tallest building at Eastern Yards. The building will include a 5* hospitality offering incorporating 126-bed luxury hotel and 58 associated apartments, together with full amenities and two high level restaurants with uninterrupted views of the River Thames. The hotel will be managed by a world-class operator, with amenities available to the estate and wider area. A large cultural public square and retail space will be developed at the base.

Make Architects has been instructed to develop designs for Building 4, a residential building overlooking the River Thames. The building will rise to 20 floors, comprising 74 private apartments, and a resident’s roof garden with uncompromised views of the City and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Allies and Morrison have been appointed for Building 7, comprising 184 residences, a mixture of private and affordable homes, and a retail offering at the base.

Stiff + Trevillion will develop designs for Building 9, the 8-storey commercial building to the south of the site, providing forward-thinking office space, with ample outdoor spaces and terraces, attractive to SME businesses.

PLP Architecture are masterplanners for the overall Bankside Yards development. The project will open up a previously inaccessible part of central London, connecting through-routes between Bankside and the South Bank for the first time in more than 100 years across the site.

The centerpiece will be 14 historic railway arches, restored to provide independent shops, restaurants, bars, cafés, and amenities, including new cultural spaces to complement the area’s world-class cultural offer, including the Southbank Center and Tate Modern.

Alasdair Nicholls, Chief Executive at Native Land, said:
“The Bankside Yards masterplan allows each building to have its own materiality and character while complementing one another, and we have appointed leading British practices to achieve this. PLP Architecture, Make Architects, Allies and Morrison and Stiff + Trevillion are all world-class practices who will bring their own design identity to the development.”

Bankside Yards is a development by a consortium comprising Native Land, Temasek, HPL and Amcorp. The consented masterplan, comprises 1.4m sq ft of home, office, restaurant, cultural and open space in a 5.5-acre prime riverside location.

Construction of the first phase at Bankside Yards, known as Western Yards, started in late 2019. This includes Arbor, a 230,000-ft next-generation office building due to complete in 2022, a 240-home apartment building and extensive retail, restaurant and cultural space in the restored railway arches.

Native Land this week received planning approval for new proposals for its Eastern Yards site, part of the £1 billion Bankside Yards mixed-use development, in Bankside, London SE1.

The entire Bankside Yards project received planning consent in 2014 for homes, offices, restaurants, cultural uses and open space in a 5.5-acre riverside estate in central London, set around 14 historic railway arches.

Native Land and its consortium partners Temasek, HPL and Amcorp Properties recently made a planning application with new proposals for the second phase of the Bankside Yards development, known as Eastern Yards, on the former site of Sampson House. The planning application was approved by Southwark Council on Monday 24th February 2020.

The approved application will bring 341 new homes, representing an increase of 109 homes on the original planning consent, and will include onsite affordable housing in addition to a financial contribution towards new homes in the borough. The new consent also includes an international standard 5-star hotel, together with office space for SMEs, additional retail and 30% more open space.

Eastern Yards is comprised of 550,000 sq.ft of the 1.4m sq.ft Bankside Yards site, and five buildings. Masterplanners PLP Architecture have designed four buildings including homes, an office, and a hotel with a high-level restaurant, with a further residential building designed by Make Architects.

Bankside Yards will open up a previously inaccessible part of central London, connecting Bankside and the South Bank for the first time in more than 100 years, to create a place where creativity, community and commerce come together. The centrepiece will be 14 stunning railway arches, restored to provide independent shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and amenities, including new cultural spaces to complement the area’s world-class cultural offer.

Alasdair Nicholls, Chief Executive of Native Land, said:
“This new planning consent will create a true mixed-use development which brings London together, with new east-west pedestrian routes, multiple transport links, a new village high street in the arches and new town square for Bankside, overlooking the river. We’ve conceived Bankside Yards as a central London place where visitors, office workers, residents and neighbours come together.”

Construction of the first phase at Bankside Yards, known as Western Yards, started in 2019. This includes Arbor, a 230,000-ft next-generation office building, a 240-home apartment building and 49,500 of independent retail, restaurant, cultural and amenity space in the restored railway arches.
