The Kite in Newington Causeway, a 143,915 sq ft mixed-use scheme in the heart of Elephant and Castle designed by SPPARC. The transformation of the site will involve replacing disused garage buildings with a 24-storey tower comprising of a 140-room hotel, 48 one, two- and three-bedroom apartments. The site has a narrow principal frontage onto Newington Causeway of only 9m whilst expanding to a 49m frontage onto Tiverton Street. The triangular shape of the site presented the opportunity for SPPARC to create an interesting geometric object. The kite form of the tower is informed by the angle of the building’s sharp point, and its relationship to Newington Causeway.
Height: 82m
Number of storeys: 24
