“They are constantly talking to people and really ‘get’ that side of things. Many voluntary sector clients could benefit from working with pH+.”
Sam Hyde, Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy, community client representative
This mixed-use development climbs a hill in North London, starting as a series of private houses and apartments and ending as the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy. The steeply stepping residential buildings follow the contours of the land, broken up in an alternating pattern of brick and glazed elements. Each of the six large family homes and 22 apartments are defined by golden-lined bays of varying tones.
The new Centre is part refurbishment of an existing building and part new-build extension. The proportions of the extension match that of its neighbour and it is arranged in bays that open up views for the teaching areas and provide break-out spaces.
