Blue Star House


Blue Star House is a prominent island site set in the heart of Brixton opposite the Grade II listed O2 Brixton Academy, representing a new neighbourhood for Derwent London.

The existing 54,000 sq ft eleven-storey building comprises multi-let office space and restaurant and leisure accommodation at ground/podium level. Derwent London acquired the freehold interest in February 2020 and have appointed Opera as project managers to explore the redevelopment of the site. To date, the principal consultant team has been appointed and initial RIBA stage 1 and brief review has been carried out.

A key part of Derwent’s business model is their industry leading commitment to architecture, research and responsibility. The redevelopment of Blue Star House is intended to be an exemplary piece of London architecture that responds to the requirements of the local Brixton community, with mixed-use public amenity and affordable workspace. Furthermore, this project will set the benchmark for sustainable design with focus on achieving net zero carbon status, aligning with Derwent’s sustainability roadmap to net zero carbon for all their buildings by 2030.
