Studio Weave were appointed alongside Architecture00 & Dark Matter Labs to develop proposals for Holyrood Street within Team London Bridge’s vision for a Southwark ‘Low Line’. Our scope included appraising the existing condition in a baseline information review; conducting feasibility studies to assess spatial constraints and opportunities; and developing a methodology for phased implementation of improvements to the public realm and viaduct vaults.

Holyrood Street is at the epicentre of the London Bridge Opportunity Area, where investment in new infrastructure, residential and work space is leading a rapidly changing character and use. Our study and proposals sought to address both physical and programmatic investment opportunities, such as: cultural opportunities for creation of local commissions and venues; economic opportunities for incubation of local entrepreneurship and innovation; alongside public realm improvements which work the existing condition to maintain the distinct character fomented over time.
