The project involved an existing site in Bermondsey (previously the Peek Freans biscuit factory), the site sits within The Tower Bridge Business Complex. The brief was to design a leisure / sports facility for The Arch Climbing Wall Ltd. The Arch’s current building is in need of refurbishment in order to meet part L standards, and a new building is required to meet the growing needs of the Arch. A café, bar area, retail space, and gym facilities where to be included as well as provisions for a climbable façade, an increase in bouldering spaces and outside roof spaces.
