Lancer SquareImages1 / Information
Location London W8
Status Planning consent January 2014
Lancer Square is a 13,600 sqm mixed-use scheme comprised of four blocks ranging from four to seven storeys and includes fifty-one 1-4 bedroom private and affordable residential apartments, a new office building with shops and cafés at ground level and the introduction of a landscaped public courtyard.
Squire and Partners' design is a contemporary interpretation of the architectural character found within the Kensington Palace Conservation area. Drawing inspiration from the site’s horticultural past and its royal neighbours, the textured two-tone brick façades and vertical window proportions create connections with Kensington Palace whilst celebrating traditional and contemporary craftsmanship. A new landscaped public garden, visible from Kensington Church Street, continues the tradition of west London garden squares, and references the former use of the site as the Kensington Palace kitchen garden.
