Spparc's Native Bankside opens for business

SPPARC's Native Bankside project, which is now open for business

Practice converts 19th-century warehouses into 75-room apartment hotel

Spparc’s conversion of a three 19th-century Southwark warehouses into a mixed-use scheme focused around a 75-room apartment hotel has opened to visitors.

The Native Bankside development, close to Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre, is eight storeys tall at its highest and features a mix of restoration and interventions.

Spparc said the courtyard to the front of the development was historically a site for bear-baiting and had been retained and restored to maintain a “remnant of the medieval street pattern”.
