The Sampson & Ludgate project (also known as Bankside Yards) is a 1.4million sq ft development at the southern end of Blackfriars Bridge, situated between the Tate Modern and Oxo Tower. The PLP-designed master plan comprises nine buildings across the current Sampson and Ludgate sites, ranging from seven to fifty storey towers. These will provide over 500 new homes alongside office, cultural, leisure and retail spaces all arranged around a new landscaped public realm providing new pedestrian links to the River Thames.
MSMR is appointed by Native Land as interior architect on the tallest of the nine towers at the centre of the cluster. This residential building comprises of c. 240 apartments and associated residents’ amenity spaces.
The design will optimise the floorplans to create generous and light living spaces which maximise the panoramic views across London, that will be the defining aspect of this prominent development.
