Somerstown Community Centre

Client: LB Camden

This feasibility study for a new community centre was commissioned to look at how a new community building could be placed within an existing residential estate and could serve as a satellite to a larger facility.

We proposed a ‘cabin’ which could transform when active and inactive, open and close, day and night to be open, transparent and welcoming when in use and sit comfortably as an addition within the landscape when closed. It was designed as a prototype for other, possibly semi-permanent structures which could be placed within other similar estates.
