Family-run architects Squire & Partners, who own The Department Store in Brixton (home to their offices and the Upstairs members club), is adding a new workspace to the complex. As well as office space, The Department Store Studios will also be home to new restaurant and bar Bellefields on the ground floor and courtyard.

The restaurant will be inspired by the seven seas of the Mediterranean, from the Aegean to the Balearic sea to the Levantine basin, with the menu, created by Head Chef James Mathieson, featuring dishes like linguine vongole, lamb tagine and Turkish manti. And, as the place is being opened by architects, you can bet it’s gonna be a good looking spot too.
