Dellow Arts & Activity Centre, London, New build
Client: Providence Row
A new arts and activity building for a homeless charity in East London located on a small, landlocked site, containing art studio, workshops and offices. The colourful, faceted facade gives a strong identity for the plight of the homeless and presents a welcoming frontage. The permeable facade has activated the under-used courtyard and initiated a rolling programme of works to improve the public space and better link the other buildings forming the centre. An inventive use of materials and the provision of simple, flexible spaces means the building was delivered on a modest budget of £1200/sqm.
