RIBA London Great British Buildings Tour - Lambeth Civic Centre and Town Hall

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about this RIBA Award winning building from the architect who designed it. As part of this series of events showcasing 2019's Award winners, Cartwright Pickard are giving a tour Lambeth Civic Centre and Town Hall.

As part of this series of events showcasing 2019's Award winners, Cartwright Pickard will be giving us a tour of Lambeth Civic Centre and Town Hall.

Lambeth Council's new civic quarter is centred around the refurbishment of the Grade I Listed Lambeth Town Hall and the construction of a new build Civic Centre. The Council's drive was to rationalise outdated building stock to reduce running costs and centralise the Borough's facilities to create a more efficient organisation. The project has achieved this aim, reducing the Council's core office buildings from fourteen to two, saving taxpayer money and cutting the Council's carbon footprint by two thirds.

The masterplan creates a public realm setting for the two civic buildings on Brixton Hill that leads into a more domestic street setting for affordable and market housing, delivered as part of the wider masterplan.

This scheme has won a RIBA London Award 2019.

This event is part of our Great British Buildings series of talks and tours around the country.
