Igloo

Igloo’s Bermondsey Square development was undertaken as part of a holistic economic, social, environmental and physical intervention delivered in partnership with Southwark Council, the London Development Agency and the local community. It won London’s Best Public Space at the 2011 London Planning Awards. Built on a derelict site near the junction of Bermondsey Street and Tower Bridge Road, it includes a hotel, office space, apartments, a cinema, bookshop, supermarket and restaurant, and hosts a weekly farmers’ market. Award-winning architects East developed the public realm for the square which was conceived as a carpet upon which are scattered an array of bollards, cycle hoops and a boules pitch like trinkets on the market stalls. Caro Communications launched the development, and worked with the local community to promote subsequent events.
