Castle Lane

Westminster, London

  • Client: Landsec
  • Architect: Droo (Formally Rare)
  • Scope: New Build

Land Securities were granted planning for the redevelopment of the former Westminster Kingsway College building at 6 Castle Lane. Over an 18 month period, Parmarbrook worked closely with DROO architects on the feasibility study, considering opportunities to redevelop the site.

The approved proposal included the existing 1930ā€™s school building demolished and replaced with 28 high-quality apartments and 3 townhouses with a mix of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes. Set in the Birdcage Walk Conservation Area ā€“ characterised by richness and diversity of townscape, the scheme expresses key local architectural elements, such as the use of brick and Georgian bow windows.
