Description of 8 Albert Embankment

8 Albert Embankment is a London Fire Brigade headquarters building in London SE1.

U+I is redeveloping the site in partnership with the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LEFPA).

The proposed plans are set to retain and restore the Grade II listed Lambeth Fire Station building, a modern new fire station and a permanent home for the London Fire Brigade Museum.

The development will also provide over 300 homes, generate flexible workspace, a hotel and three new public squares with restaurants, cafés, and shops.

History

First constructed in 1937, this Grade II listed was originally the headquarters of the London Fire Brigade before becoming the home to Lambeth fire station. Our plans for the site will take the fire station into the next chapter of its life, completely redesigning the space to create a modern, fit-for-purpose fire station and training yard.
