Doon Street

Doon Street is a major mixed-use development adjacent to the National Theatre on the South Bank, London, conceived as a terrace of different buildings each expressing its function yet forming an overall composition on the street.

The materials chosen reflect the light coloured masonry and reconstituted stone of the development’s neighbours with self finished metals for louvres, spandrel and ventilation panels. This phased development includes an indoor swimming and leisure centre, a new headquarters for Rambert Dance Company, public open space, retail and commercial facilities.

This scheme will provide 355 luxury apartments housed in a slender tower that provides extraordinary views of the River Thames and the city. The indoor swimming pool and leisure centre provides the community with a much needed facility. The centre features an 8 lane 25m swimming pool and learner pool, a 100 piece gymnasium, two aerobics studios, a 4 court multi-purpose sports hall, changing village, café and crèche.

An area of 1800 sq m is given over to public open space including a new public square at the site’s western end with links to Waterloo station and Waterloo Bridge.
