They were supposed to open in 2016Soho House opening in Brixton this year? Anyone know anything about this?
Nooooooooooo! Soho house is the absolute bastion of media twattery.Soho House opening in Brixton this year? Anyone know anything about this?
Does Brixton need another divisive, private members, poor-people repelling exclusive members' club? In fact, I'd argue it doesn't need any.Nooooooooooo! Soho house is the absolute bastion of media twattery.
I was talking to someone who works in the Amsterdam one earlier this week who said the management company isn’t doing well and this is trickling down into the individual houses and staff morale is very low.
They've just spent (by their standards) a fair bit of cash doing up the place and improving some bits of the PA, so I'd be surprised if they're moving in anytime soon, although it wouldn't surprise me. Losing the Dog to a wanky exclusive private club really would be the death knell of Brixton.They want the Dogstar building iirc
Christ, I hope not. If I'm going to have a swank bar dumped on my doorstep, I'd at least like to have the option of going in. Planning for the extension states:The new extension by the architecture firm would seem obvious place. Let's hope it's just some daft rumours
I used to get my hair cut in thereWas just watching Mary Beard's programme Front Row Late on BBC2.
As an interlude she popped down to Nitin Sawhney's studio in Brixton for a discussion on death - and how he produced an album in response to the death of his father.
I didn't know there was a studio at 43-45 Tunstall Road that he uses - the Dairy Studios.
But it does rather explain how the David Bowie mural in Tunstall Road became a shrine.
could we buy it for a certain urbanite?On a totally different tack from normal, I was shocked and taken aback this afternoon en route to Lidl to see this amazing piece on offer at the British Heart Foundation shop in Acre Lane.

I do actually have a harmonium at home - a smaller device which I inherited from my maternal grandparents. But it doesn't work very well as the bellows are perished.
This Canadian harmonium, which BHF have on Ebay really gives me a buzz. Is there a higher order of trainspotters who feel attracted to harmoniums?
"With its excellent connectivity to the West End, we see this as an exciting addition to our substantial development pipeline....”I’m not sure the centre of Brixton can handle another “significantly larger scheme”, although it’s not the most beautiful building...

I do find it odd that the main report on the planning link is by an officer.I'd not seen the proposed Cherry Groce memorial before. This photomontage shows it with the recent memorial for African and Caribbean service men and women in the background.
Rush Common consent was granted today. Main planning application decision is due in March. More photos in the application documents here.

Are you possibly confusing the Rush Common Application (which has been decided and includes the usual officer's delegated report detailing how the decision was arrived at) with the Full Planning Approval (yet to be approved)? I linked to both applications - that's possibly not very clear. That said, neither appears to have any supporting documents such as a design and access statement which would normally provide the answers to the questions you are asking.I do find it odd that the main report on the planning link is by an officer.
Normally with planning issues the person/ business/group puts in a document about the proposal and the reasoning behined it.
Im still not clear who is behind this application or why they think this memorial is needed. What it is supposed to signify.
What is it about? Police violence? A riot in response to it? Valid issues but I would like to know what it is supposed to represent. The riot after the shooting was a big riot.
See Brixton Society say there should be more on the memorial about what its for.
