Success for Brixton Centric at Sunday Times British Homes Awards
Muse’s Brixton Centric scheme has scooped a prestigious Sunday Times British Homes Award.
Brixton Centric won Mixed-Use Development of the Year and the restoration of historic, art-deco Ivor House also received a high commendation for Development Transformation of the Year.
The mixed-use development is in the centre of Brixton and includes 94 new build apartments and the complete restoration of Ivor House into 26 characterful homes and ground floor commercial space. It was delivered in partnership with London Borough of Lambeth, designed by Cartwright Pickard and built by sister company, Morgan Sindall Construction.
The scheme forms part of the wider Your New Town Hall project, a major regeneration scheme in the heart of the borough which has delivered a modern and sustainable 120,000 sq ft new civic offices, the restoration of the Grade II Listed Lambeth Town Hall, new homes and new civic and community spaces.
James Stockdale, senior development manager at Muse Developments, said: “This is a major achievement for our Brixton scheme, which has been a true partnership project from the outset.
“Brixton Centric has sensitively restored a unique historic building and created new homes, including 40% affordable, in an unrivalled central location. The wider regeneration project has also delivered a new civic office, restored town hall and new commercial space, so I’m delighted its significant impact on the local area has been recognised.”
