The Galleria, Sumner Road, Southwark

5 to 10 Storey Live/Work Apartments

The building has 5 to 10 floors of flats, studios and artists' live/ work apartments. The photo above shows the five storey section with the ten storey section located behind. The superstructure is a concrete frame, with a heavy transfer slab above a basement car park. The basement has a steel sheet piled retaining wall. The penthouse apartments are steel framed. The site is underlain by gravel, with a relatively high bearing pressure permitting simple reinforced concrete pad bases rather than more expensive piling. To allow settlement of the framed structure, a sliding joint maintains the propping action of the transfer slab against the capping beam of the retaining wall.
