84-90 Lordship Lane, Dulwich, London
We obtained Planning consent in August 2014 on behalf of our client, Farcastle Ltd, for the extension and conversion of this three-storey, concrete framed and brick-clad building on the western side of the Lordship Lane, 15 minutes walk south-east of East Dulwich railway station.
The existing building comprised a frozen food store (Iceland) at ground floor and predominantly vacant office space on the upper floors. The redevelopment extended the existing Iceland supermarket and changed office and residential space on upper floors into eight new two-bedroom flats. The enlarged ground floor provided an improved unit for the incoming national foodstore retailer, Marks & Spencer.
The Marks and Spencer store uses the entire original ground floor space as sales area. The new extension to the rear provides space for ancillary accommodation with goods handling and storage, staff areas and cold rooms. Above the store, dividing the floor plan of the existing first and second floor levels into four allowed the formation of eight 2-bedroom flats within the envelope of the existing building. Access to the upper floors and the new flats is relocated to the rear of the building and oriented to face towards Chesterfield Grove. The flats are approached via a first-floor amenity space on the roof of the retail extension.
