Gagarin Square in London is set to spearhead Southwark Street’s revival
Posted on: 24/06/2016

Southwark Square Ltd has revealed their innovative plans for London’s Southwark Street revival. The developers have introduced a new theatre, rehearsal studio, observatory, exhibition space, restaurant, public terrace and commercial space for the multi-purpose Gagarin Square.

The structure, designed by Russian architect Nikita Yaveyn of Studio 44, features Russian architectural influences and aims to bring novelty to London’s developing skyline. Gagarin Square’s vision has also been influenced by Menier Chocolate Factory theatre, next door to where complex is planned to be built.

Donald Riley, director at Southwark Square Ltd and development director for Gagarin Square, comments: “This is the perfect time to tap into Southwark Street’s multifaceted potential. Artistic director David Babani has been exceptionally successful with our Menier Chocolate Factory theatre, hidden behind a Victorian warehouse exterior. Gagarin Square’s façade will be as magnetic as those of past cinemas of the Old Kent Road. By bringing bold and striking architecture to London’s skyline, Gagarin Square will raise Southwark Street’s profile and halve the distance to the new “Elephant”. It will boost the capital’s economy by attracting tourists, avid theatre goers, not to mention further investment in commercial and residential property for miles beyond.”

Southwark Square Ltd’s Gagarin Square is currently subject to a planning appeal.
