Will Alsop’s practice aLL Design has revealed the plans for its new 15-story residential tower in Vauxhall’s new arts district on Newport Street in south London. The project, called The Beacon, was commissioned by Newport Street Projects (NSP), which was formed solely for the development of the up-and-coming area.
The Beacon will be 1,735 square meters, with a narrowed footprint at the ground level, giving back 38% of street-level space to be used as public seating, landscaping, and permanent art installations.
The theme of art continues into the ground floor of the building, which will not only act as a residents’ reception area, but also as an exhibition space for local artists.
The building will contain 12 flats, each occupying an entire floor plate, with the exception of the top floor, which will be a duplex with a rooftop terrace. Furthermore, the first floor of the building will include amenity space for residents, including a children’s play area.
