The redevelopment of the former Vinopolis premises into a new shopping and restaurant complex has now been renamed ‘Borough Yards’ by developer Meyer Bergman.
Designed by architect SPPARC , the development features five mixed-use buildings for offices, shops, gallery, restaurants and a cinema.
Also it will restore and reinvent the lost medieval street pattern of the area adjacent to the world-famous food destination Borough Market. Several historic local street names will be revived, including Dirty Lane, Clink Yard and Soap Yard.
Trevor Morriss, Principal at SPPARC, said: “Borough Yards will become a new cultural destination that reflects the work/play balance of modern London.
“Located next to the historic Borough Market, the development of new streets, cultural galleries and flexible workspace will be a lively addition to the area which currently lacks any fashion led retail. ”
Victorian brick railway viaducts will be opened up to allow for pedestrian lanes. The scheme’s design engages with existing fabric and patterns of pedestrian movement to integrate new architecture and re-purposed structures into a complex urban context”
The professional team includes Pell Frischmann as structural engineer and Meinhardt as M&E engineer.
