Celebrate with us at this year's Summer Party and discover the exciting new look for The London Society at Brixton's coolest new venue – Upstairs at The Department Store!Join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening. Meet friends over delicious food, drink, music and great conversation, and be the first to see the exciting new look for The London Society inspired by our motto - "Valuing the past; looking to the future". Thanks to Squire & Partners architects, this year's party will take place on the stunning rooftop terrace 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. The London Society is grateful for the generous support of the 2019 Summer Party by: Squire & Partners, Allies and Morrison, Argent, ft'work, HTA llp, Michael Barclay Partnership, Pollard Thomas Edwards, and Rockwell. **Bookings have now closed for the Summer Party** The party will start at 6:45pm following The London Society AGM which will be held Downstairs which all current Society members are able to attend and vote at.
