Located in the centre of Richmond, at the highly prominent intersection of Church St and Bridge Rd, the Richmond Traders project seeks primarily to reactivate an area of land that had, for many years, been poorly serviced and underutilised.
Drawing extensive references and cues from its rich and layered context, Richmond Traders is a materially rich tapestry of strong brick forms and colonades, sculpted concrete panels, sawtooth metal rooflines and other architectural elements formed to create a dialogue and narrative with the site’s mix of industrial, post-war and period architecture.
As a new and evolving typology, Build to Rent offers up an important distinction to many rental properties – security of tenure. It truly endeavours to create a safe environment, a strong sense of community and stitching an existing and established neighbourhood into a newly formed and enlivened village.
