Award-winning London architectural practice East have once again proven their expert skill, here creating a new public area for Bermondsey Square in Southwark, South London. The aim of the square is to rekindle a sense of community within the new expansion, linking the surrounding spaces, pedestrian and cycle routes to the day-to-day activities of the area. With the square incorporating an arena for an outdoor cinema, seating, general play and a market, the space not only will help to bring people to Bermondsey, but is also in keeping with the deep heritage of the area [The Bermondsey Antiques Market has been trading on the site since 1855]. Conceived as a blank carpet with simple design elements dotted across its expanse, the playful ambience of the space will surely bring a fun quality to the square – one that will surely be appreciated by both local residents and visitors to the area alike.
