West Grove, designed by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM), is part of Lendlease’s Elephant Park regeneration project in Elephant & Castle. SCP contracts worked with AHMM to specify furniture and lighting for the shared residential spaces and the West Grove Club. This includes a 24 hour concierge, lounge and café area, resident’s room and gym with links to the shared courtyard space. This amenity space links three buildings.
The Highwood is a 31 storey tower, the tallest building on the masterplan. The cruciform plan naturally splits the tower façade in to strong vertical elements. The design of the façade includes deep feature fins of natural anodised aluminium creating an overall vertical framework of the building. Within this overall framework sit triangular profiled bronze anodised aluminium panels, which create further depth and shadow on the façade.
Highwood Garden Terrace is a ten storey Mansion style building which is part-terraced creating generous spaces and distinctive gables at either end of a new retail street. The building is formed of a regular red brick grid with playfully arranged glazed terracotta infills. The terracotta colours gradate from a buff to dark red from south to north, inspired by the local architectural palette.
Highwood Corner is a ten-storey building on the prominent corner of Heygate Street and Walworth Road. Each corner of the building is chamfered to respond to existing trees and to allow better daylight and views to and from the plot. The building is clad in smooth and wire-cut black brickwork arranged in a honeycomb pattern.
