Lambeth Council's new civic quarter is centred around the refurbishment of the Grade II Listed Lambeth Town Hall and the construction of a new-build Civic Centre. The drive was to rationalise the Council’s outdated building stock to reduce running costs and centralise the Borough's facilities to create a more efficient organisation.

The project, delivered by Muse Developments, Cartwright Pickard and Morgan Sindall, has achieved this aim, reducing the Council's core office buildings from fourteen to two, saving taxpayers over £4.5m a year and cutting the Council's carbon footprint by two thirds.

The refurbishment of the Town Hall uncovered and reinstated the architectural character of an Edwardian landmark in the heart of Brixton, while transforming it into a vibrant council building fit for the future. Work included the creation of a new central atrium with an ETFE roof, a new courtyard, and refurbishment of the council chamber, assembly halls and committee rooms.

Linked by a new civic route, Lambeth Civic Centre is highly flexible to accommodate future change and smart working. A 24-metre tall atrium links all six floors and its innovative ‘smart façade’ curtain walling is the first use of SageGlass + VS1 in the world, an intelligent solar control glazing system which is a maintenance-free alternative to blinds or shades. Both buildings are BREEAM Excellent.

Join us for an exciting opportunity to find out more about this project from the people behind it.
