The converted department store in London’s Brixton district now houses the headquarters of the architectural office Squire & Partners. The glass dome, with a diameter of 6 m and a height of 4.5 m, topped with a metal lantern accenting the historical building with its modern design. In the joint design phase, Tuchschmid worked closely with the client laying out the details for the subsequent realization of the dome consisting of a grid of steel profiles and 112 three-dimensionally curved glass panels.
