Prime Resi takes a first look inside Lancer Square in Kensington. Partner Tim Gledstone is quoted, 'Lancer Square represents a rare opportunity to extend the urban village of Kensington with a development steeped in the area's history. Originally home to Kensington Palace kitchen garden, the site later became Kensington Barracks housing cavalry and infantry including the Royal Lancers.
Squire & Partners' design organises the site with a cluster of elegantly proportioned buildings set around a landscaped public courtyard, taking influences from the Palace's courtyards, Orangery and Sunken Garden. Four distinct buildings - housing apartments, workspace, shops and cafes - enclose the square with an architectural language drawn from Kensington Palace and the surrounding Conservation Area.'
