Trafalgar Place, an Overview
Trafalgar Place is an extensive new development of 235 apartments spread over seven buildings. Varying from 4-10 storeys, each building designed to feel immediately at home in its surroundings, the development is touted as a new ideal of ‘sustainable, tranquil living in an urban setting’.
With such architectural ideology behind the project, the aim is for Trafalgar Place residents to feel part of a community. Green, communal spaces are a fundamental part of this plan, though Trafalgar Place also boasts a garden, roof terrace or balcony for every home meaning that every resident can enjoy the benefits of having some private outdoor space.
Likewise, sunshine, open air and greenery is a key factor throughout the development, with mature trees, safe bicycle routes, garden roof terraces and public parks and squares all contributing to a renewed neighbourhood in the heart of London.
Situated in Elephant and Castle, a fantastically central zone-one location, Trafalgar Place will offer the comfort and convenience of being just moments away from the financial and political districts of London while also having good access to local facilities including; shops, bars and restaurants while also being surrounded by Theatres, Art Galleries and more. In short, Trafalgar Place will tick all the boxes demanded by modern day Londoners.
A History of Trafalgar Place
Southwark, the borough in which Trafalgar Place resides has, like much of London, a varied and rich past. In ancient times, similar to many parts of London beyond the walls of the City of London, Southwark was home to brothels, slums and a reputation for debauchery. However, one could argue that out of this has grown London’s renown for tolerance, diversity and as a leader within the creative industries.
It is no coincidence that the original Shakespeare’s Globe was situated in Southwark, as during Shakespeare’s time acting was associated with the seedier, amoral side of life. Today, The Globe rebuilt, stands proudly in its original spot and continues to present the Bard’s work, which has stood the test of time.
It would be fair to say that London itself and in particular various part of Southwark and Elephant and Castle have not stood the test of time! Having suffered bomb damage during the Second World War However, this has only added to London’s sense of continual renewal and Trafalgar Place represents another rise from the ashes moment. Elephant and Castle was, in the 1920’s, a vibrant though relatively poor area of London. But, it did boast two cinema’s, a busy high street and a strong community feel that London has long been known for. Unfortunately, a rather grim housing project in the 1960’s saw The Elephant and Castle fall from grace, its iconic shopping centre becoming less an ideal of modernist architecture and more a folly of shortsighted town planning.
Now however with developments such as Elephant Park, One the Elephant and Trafalgar Place, Elephant and Castle has finally been regenerated and investors, owner-occupiers and professional landlords are clamouring to buy into what must surely be the most eagerly awaited revival of a Central London area.
Living & Investing In Trafalgar Place
Lend Lease, the developers behind Trafalgar Place, are stalwarts in urban regeneration with projects that have given a new lease of life to towns and cities across the UK. However even for such celebrated award winning developers, Trafalgar Place is a hugely innovative ground-breaking project, that together with Elephant Park and One The Elephant will see thousands of new homes built, creating a whole new neighbourhood and has already become an exemplary showpiece of sustainable development, performing above and beyond required current standards.
Designed by de Rijke Marsh Morgan (dRMM) Architects, Trafalgar Place is made up of studio, 1,2 and 3 bedrooms apartments across seven buildings, each with their own distinctive style and varied use of construction materials that take in the surrounding heritage and existing architecture.
Interiors have been designed by Woods Bagot, a pan-European design office whose projects have included residencies in Melbourne, San Francisco, Mumbai, Shanghai and of course London. Woods Bagot’s cross-continent experience has led them to create interiors that are stylish and functional with simple, refined colour palettes that allow for the owners own personality to shine through.
Simple ideas such as narrowing the corridors very slightly to allow for larger living spaces, and ensuring there is plenty of storage space so that floors are free from unnecessary clutter or bulky furniture make for a series of apartments where practicality is key, yet quality is not compromised.
A glance through the Trafalgar Place brochure shows that Lend Lease is very much aiming the development at young professionals, families and mature residents. Images show people cycling, gossiping over coffee and children playing. Indeed the whole Elephant and Castle regeneration has been planned with community in mind and so communal spaces and green play areas are an integral part of the whole scheme. As a result, all of the Trafalgar Place buildings benefit from a collective ‘bigger picture’ plan rather than simply being plonked into an existing empty plot!
