Wandsworth Council Design Award 2003

The project comprises a new build and a conversion of an existing listed building. A caf?? is created within the original building, plus community space, kitchen and SureStart offices and creche. In the new building the building???s section allows for differing scales of play space and for covered outdoor play and provides two separate children's areas plus a baby unit. A series of small coloured windows along the back elevation cast light at different heights and intensities throughout the day and act as a screen against the view of the railway line behind. The existing buildings were made accessible to DDA requirements and upgraded to meet current Building Regulations and the Georgian Facade was extensively restored.
