New Marlborough Yard, 2015-2020
- 274 key hotel, Southbank SE1

1/9
 

Nestled between Waterloo Station and Tate Modern, New Marlborough Yard off The Cut is a 174 key Premier Inn formed around new public courtyards and a re-instated lost lane known, in the 19th Century, as Marlborough Street.

The site  first came to prominence in the historical record as part of the botanical garden created by apothecary & botanist William Curtis in 1779, one of the first of its kind. William Curtis cultivated, studied and archived a wide range of exotics and British flora. Curtis attempted to collect and catalogue all flora within a ten mile radius of London.

Otterlo, worked with Haworth Tompkins (Stirling Prize 2014 - Everyman Liverpool), architect behind Young Vic opposite the site, and landscape designer, Matthew Wigan to draw on this horticultural heritage. 

New Marlborough Yard reinstates a historic lane, Marlborough Street connecting the Cut with the quieter hinterland beyond - creating two pocket parks for Southwark College students and office workers nearby to enjoy calm refuge.The historic grain is expressed in the patterning within the public realm and is designed in the spirit of other ‘discoverable’ courtyards such as Ham Yard, St Christopher’s Place and Shepherd Market.

Otterlo's acted as the developer manager acquiring the site from Southwark College on behalf of Galliard and Acorn Property Group. Building on an extant 3,500sqm residential planning permission, Otterlo secured planning permission for a 9,141sqm mixed use scheme. The creation of a new public realm comprising a new street and two pocket parks and high quality architecture and landscaping justified the 160% uplift of development. Securing a sale agreement with Whitbread for a 274 key hotel the scheme was acquired and built out by Frogmore.
