Brixton Green is a community benefit society registered with the Financial Conduct Authority. The Brixton Green project for Somerleyton Road first started in May 2008.

Haworth Tompkins was formed in 1991 by architects Graham Haworth and Steve Tompkins. Our London-based studio has designed buildings in the UK and elsewhere for clients across the public, private and subsidised sectors including schools, galleries, theatres, concert halls, housing, offices, shops and factories.
