Ebury Centre, SW1 London, UK
The £35m project in Westminster includes a new 5,200m² University Technical College (UTC) constructed in memory of the late Sir Simon Milton, London's former Deputy Mayor for Planning and Policy. The UTC will sit alongside 47 residential units for Redrow Homes.
Adjacent to a busy railway line, the UTC is positioned to the south side of the site responding to the neighboring Peabody Estate. Configured in an L shape set around a double-height entrance, the workshops include engineering, gym and sports facilities and a large outdoor terrace. To the north is the 10-storey residential block which creates a strong angular form facing Ebury Bridge.
The brick-clad UTC building will provide space for 550 pupils aged between 14-18 year olds, housing a facility with a specialism in engineering sponsored by the University of Westminster and Network Rail.
The residential building uses a palette of textured stone and aluminum that reflects the architectural character of the Pimlico Conservation area, forming a gateway to the area at the intersection of the mainline rail tracks and the bridge.
