Award win for Brixton housing scheme

Residential developer Muse is celebrating a prestigious award win for a mixed-use housing scheme in Brixton.

Brixton Centric won Mixed-Use Development of the Year at the Sunday Times British Homes Award in September, and the restoration of historic, art-deco Ivor House also received a high commendation for Development Transformation of the Year.

The mixed-use accommodation located in the centre of Brixton includes 94 new build apartments, as well as the restoration of Ivor House into 26 homes and ground floor commercial space. 

It was designed by Cartwright Pickard, built by Muse’s sister company, Morgan Sindall Construction and delivered in partnership with Lambeth Council.

The scheme forms part of the wider Your New Town Hall project that is a major regeneration scheme in the heart of the borough. This has delivered a 120,000sq ft of 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.”
