Native Land appoints four architects to develop designs for Bankside Yards

Architectural designs called for Eastern Yards, part of a new riverside neighbourhood in London’s Bankside.

Native Land has appointed four major international architectural practices to develop designs for four buildings within Eastern Yards, part of the £1 billion Bankside Yards mixed-use development, in Bankside, London SE1.

Eastern Yards, on the former Sampson House site, makes up 550,000 sq ft of the 1.4m sq ft Bankside Yards development, and comprises five buildings in total. The site, which was granted a new planning consent earlier this year, will include 341 homes, 70,000 sq ft of workspace, approximately 1.5 acres of public open space and 8,000 sq ft of cultural space.

PLP Architecture will work on designs for Building 5, the tallest building at Eastern Yards. The building will include a 5* hospitality offering incorporating 126-bed luxury hotel and 58 associated apartments, together with full amenities and two high level restaurants with uninterrupted views of the River Thames. The hotel will be managed by a world-class operator, with amenities available to the estate and wider area. A large cultural public square and retail space will be developed at the base.

Make Architects has been instructed to develop designs for Building 4, a residential building overlooking the River Thames. The building will rise to 20 floors, comprising 74 private apartments, and a resident’s roof garden with uncompromised views of the City and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Allies and Morrison have been appointed for Building 7, comprising 184 residences, a mixture of private and affordable homes, and a retail offering at the base.

Stiff + Trevillion will develop designs for Building 9, the 8-storey commercial building to the south of the site, providing forward-thinking office space, with ample outdoor spaces and terraces, attractive to SME businesses.

PLP Architecture are masterplanners for the overall Bankside Yards development. The project will open up a previously inaccessible part of central London, connecting through-routes between Bankside and the South Bank for the first time in more than 100 years across the site. The centerpiece will be 14 historic railway arches, restored to provide independent shops, restaurants, bars, cafés, and amenities, including new cultural spaces to complement the area’s world-class cultural offer, including the Southbank Center and Tate Modern.

“The Bankside Yards masterplan allows each building to have its own materiality and character while complementing one another, and we have appointed leading British practices to achieve this. PLP Architecture, Make Architects, Allies and Morrison and Stiff + Trevillion are all world-class practices who will bring their own design identity to the development.”

Alasdair Nicholls, Chief Executive at Native Land

Bankside Yards is a development by a consortium comprising Native Land, Temasek, HPL and Amcorp. The consented masterplan, comprises 1.4m sq ft of home, office, restaurant, cultural and open space in a 5.5-acre prime riverside location.

Construction of the first phase at Bankside Yards, known as Western Yards, started in late 2019. This includes Arbor, a 230,000-ft next-generation office building due to complete in 2022, a 147-home apartment building and extensive retail, restaurant and cultural space in the restored railway arches.

Samovar, a new large-scale sculpture by Berlin-based artist collective @slavsandtatars, has recently been installed at the @hayward.gallery. Taking the form of an oversized inflatable water boiler, teapot and serving tray, the sculpture reflects on the multicultural and colonial histories of tea. See it outside the Hayward Gallery, just around the corner from Bankside Yards, until 14 November.

#BeyondBoundariesBankside is a new series of art installation around the Bankside area. @bankside_ london have collaborated with @tatecollective to bring five new artworks made by five emerging artists to animate the streets and spaces of the surrounding area.

This artwork is by @visser.ml and is called ‘Gastro Gusto’. The artwork invites us to think about the connection between food and community. The work explores the body - and public space - and creates an opportunity to eat, meet and reconnect with others.

#BeyondBoundariesBankside is a celebration of the character and creativity of our neighbourhood, inspiring people to reconnect with art and each other. Each artist was invited to produce a new commission by @bankside_london that responds to lockdown, the easing of restrictions and to create site-specific works informed by local #bankside stories.

This artwork is by @hanecdote and is called ‘He(art) is everywhere’. It is a real celebration of the character and creativity of Bankside. The series of motifs are dedicated to local history and take a deep look at the people and trades that have existed in the area.
