TfL Brixton Operations Centre

Brixton, London SW2

Development of new build and refurbished accommodation for TfL above Brixton Underground Station. The proposal united station staff and train staff accommodation in one building, providing office and management support facilities, canteen, lockers and break out spaces for staff at the end of the Victoria Line in TfL’s ‘Greenest Build’.

Improvements to the line and an increased number of trains on the Victoria Line required the employment of additional staff; with the new building provides for all their needs as well as improved facilities for the existing station staff. Facilities were provided for 150 train crew and 59 station staff.

The development, comprising a fit out of some existing space, also includes two floors of new build accommodation dovetailed into this very tight urban site.

Marked as the ‘greenest’ of TfL’s buildings of this type, CGL designed the new development to take advantage of the building’s aspect and location in incorporating solar thermal panels to supply hot water, a green roof to soften visual impact for adjacent neighbours and conserve water, as well as rainwater harvesting and increased thermal performance to maximise energy efficiency.
