Come and join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening as we celebrate the chance to meet friends old and new over delicious food, drink, music and conversation at this year’s 2019 Summer Party (tickets are available here). There will also be a chance to see the entrants in the Society’s photo competition.
Thanks to Squire & Partners we are delighted to announce this year’s party will take place on the stunning roof top terrance of Upstairs, The Department Store in Brixton.
The Bon Marche in Brixton was built in 1876 by James Smith, a local businessman from Tooting inspired by the opulence of the original Paris Bon Marche. The Department Store was created in 1906 as a furniture annex, and was the first steel framed building in the UK. Squire & Partners purchased the dilapidated building in 2015, and entirely reimagined the space allowing the existing fabric and layers of history to inform the new design. Collaborating with craftspeople and furniture makers, the restored building provides an exciting array of spaces for the various design disciplines within the practice.
Holding the party in this wonderful space, we feel, perfectly reflects the Society’s mission of “valuing the past, looking to the future“.
The party will start at 6:45pm following the London Society AGM which will be held Downstairs which all current members are invited to attend and vote at.
