Elizabeth House, Waterloo

Waterloo Station is one of the important public transport hubs in London. The surrounding area is fragmented through piecemeal development over time and underinvestment. In recent years the Southbank waterfront has been regenerated and is attracting millions of visitors each year.

The proposal comprises the demolition of the existing Elizabeth House buildings
and their replacement with two new buildings, providing a total of 132,127m2 GEA
of commercial, residential and retail development, as well as significant new high
quality public realm at ground level.
The basis of the scheme is to establish a new forecourt for Waterloo Station. The proposal is composed of two buildings: the North Building with office and residential accommodation, and the South Building with offices and retail at ground level.

My role as an architect was focused on the preparation of supporting planning documentation.
