Squires gets go-ahead for Brixton expansion

Squire & Partners' proposals for new co-working space in Brixton, south London

Practice cleared to extends its Department Store HQ with co-working space

Squire & Partners has won planning to create a four-storey co-working development next to its Department Store project in Brixton – where the practice is now based.

The new development, approved by members of Lambeth council’s planning committee this week, will deliver 1,200sq m of new workspace and 418sq m of new retail space on the site of derelict 1970s ancillary buildings.

Squires said the crafted red brick building, which fronts Bellefields Road, had “taken inspiration from the robust Edwardian aesthetic” of The Department Store and would feature “patterned brickwork and contemporary faceted bay windows”, along with fourth-floor terraces.
