The Department Store

The English studio Squire and Partners bought a warehouse in ruins near Brixton, London, in order to change its function and reinvent the design, leaving alive the story that resides inside.

In this regard, the architects decided to dismantle all that was superfluous and ruined but keeping some elements intact like the brick walls or the decadent ceiling.

The furniture and interiors in general have been modernized and replaced with objects with a light design that does not detract from the general atmosphere a bit ’retro. At the level of the terrace, a series of rooms and covered pavilions have been added, while the existing dome has been replaced with a new one in a worked glass that offers a splendid characterization of the building. Inside the parquet has been restored but not replaced. The building offers various social spaces such as bars and common workstations but also shops and offices.
