The project for Lambeth Council and Muse Developments has transformed Lambeth Council’s estate, cutting the council’s carbon footprint by two thirds and saving taxpayers over £5m a year. The mixed-use project has brought staff working in 14 different buildings together in the refurbished Grade II Listed Lambeth Town Hall and an adjacent new-build 11,000sqm Civic Office.
120 new homes (40% of which are affordable housing) with ground floor retail and restaurants have also been created through the refurbishment of Ivor House, an art deco former department store, and in a new 14-storey building. A former printworks has been refurbished to create a new cycle hub with 218 cycle parking spaces, changing rooms and a café.
