The scheme will deliver a state-of-the-art new Fire Station, a new Fire Services Museum, a hotel together with residential and employment space. A revitalised public realm, animated by ground floor shops and cafes, creates new routes and spaces across the development. The scheme proposals carefully integrate new building with the restoration of the two listed buildings on the site.

We propose to create three new public squares, lined by shops, restaurants and cafés. The London Fire Brigade Museum will return to the site to form the centrepiece of a range of cultural facilities. These proposals will help to meet the aspirations of Lambeth Council and the GLA to deliver new homes.
