Calverley Close, Bromley, London.
Estate regeneration providing 358 new homes (50% affordable), improved public realm and extensive communal amenity. Lazaros designed a scheme on a considerably constrained site that allowed residents to be relocated into their new homes with minimal impact, whilst also providing new affordable homes for the borough. Residents voted in favour of the scheme.
21-23 Parkhouse Street, Southwark, London.
Redevelopment of a disused warehouse next to Burgess Park to provide affordable workspace and 33 new homes (50% affordable). The 5-10 storey scheme will be a benchmark for the quality of future development. The scheme, led by Lazaros, gained planning approval by unanimous vote.
Chapel Place, Ilford, London.
A public realm-led, mixed-use development, which will provide approximately 1,200 new homes (35% affordable) and transform the Ilford Circus area into a lively and exciting place to live. Following a change in brief, Lazaros undertook the early-stage feasibility study which has led to the concept design being developed today.
Wood Wharf B2, Canary Wharf, London.
20-storey modular tower of 280 serviced apartments in Canary Wharf. Lazaros was part of the large multi-disciplinary team and managed drawing packages for the Stage 3 Detailed Design submission. The complexity of the scheme and site required close collaboration with consultants and regular reporting to the client.
Belmont Street, Chalk Farm, London.
The scheme optimised an underused, brownfield site to deliver 115 high-quality homes with high levels of residential amenity achieved through the development of a new city block. With his expertise in feasibility studies and 3D-printing, Lazaros realised a series of proposals through a collaborative design process with the local planning authority.
