Lambeth Council’s new civic quarter is centred on the refurbishment of the grade I listed Lambeth Town Hall and the construction of a civic centre. The project reduces the council’s core office buildings from 14 to two, cutting the Council’s carbon footprint. The Civic Centre is a simple but elegant rectilinear building using red brick and precast concrete panels that make reference to the Edwardian town hall. This refurbishment restores, enhances and declutters, providing new spatial opportunities. An external courtyard has been covered to create a top-lit atrium, providing a focus and connection. The council’s drive and enthusiasm and collaboration with the architect has contributed significantly to the success of this valuable facility.
