Valentine Place, London, UK

Stiff & Trevillion
Date Built
Webber Street, Southwark
Valentine Place is a new residential development of apartments, penthouses and mews houses built around an enclosed central garden area in Southwark.  The design involved the retention of the facade of a former Edwardian bakery building that occupied the corner of Valentine Place and Webber Street.

The development is in a conservation area that, ironically, was set up in an attempt by local residents to prevent the demolition of the bakery and other industrial and warehouse buildings.

A date stone sits high up on the retained facade of the former Maltina Bakery marking the fact that it was built in 1907.  It appears that despite the efforts of local people to prevent the demolition, it was just the facade that survived.

The developer, Crest Nicholson, describe Valentine Place as , "... Crafted with quality materials & luxurious interiors, these homes have been carefully designed in a modern warehouse architectural style. ... crafted around the retained facade of a former bakery with hidden communal gardens, just moments from the South Bank."
