North London Community Centre _ 2010

This former light industrial warehouse (allegedly used for the manufacture of Spitfires components during WWII), become the new home for the Marylebone Bangladeshi Society. The brief was quite ambitious, aiming to fit a lot of programme into a confined space. In addition to a central activity area, new meeting rooms, a IT room, a gym and changing room. o computer room, a mini library and administration office was provided. All of this was achieved for an extremely low budget, mainly through the use of low-cost ond recycled materials ond where possible using elements harvested from the strip out of the space. The new centre is intensively used by the local community and services as an important focus for all ages groups in the local Bangladeshi community.
