Electric Empire

The development provides 28 residential units, a mixture of affordable and private flats. It is on the site of the former Electric Empire cinema and within the designated Hatcham Conservation Area. The new development comprises 3 separate buildings which extend to between 3 and 5 storeys.

As well as residential, the development also accommodates a new restaurant/café fronting New Cross Road and new office space. The courtyard area retains an important link to the historical use of the site as a horse dealing business. The galvanized finish compliments the zinc building façade and open access galvanized walkways lead from the courtyard access tower, contributing to an overlooked secure internal courtyard.
