The Department Store, Brixton
This project took a former 1906 dilapidated and unoccupied department store and created a series of exciting work and social spaces spanning 6,147 m², for a multi-disciplinary architecture and design practice. The building contains an elegant interior design including bespoke desks, storage systems and newly inserted stairs, showcasing the skills of the architects and interior designers within.
The scope also included a range of establishments for new and existing local businesses, including a coffee roaster, vinyl record store, a community post office, delicatessen and bar/restaurant. The top floor is occupied by a bar with a large terrace with views over Brixton. Round wooden columns are used in this timber structured roof top pavilion.
The project was completed to an exacting brief retaining and historic finishes were desired and sensitively restoring others. The attention to details in these wonderful spaces helped bring the building back to life.
