The Avenues Youth Project was set up in 1979 to provide leisure facilities for the area’s children and young adults and to offer them the chance to learn new skills.
The new building is designed on two floors. It has a high thermal capacity to meet the current energy standards and is fully accessible to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination legislation. The planning of the internal accommodation is compact and the building occupies the total site area.
In commenting on the design English Heritage congratulated the Planning Department of Westminster City Council for allowing‘an unashamedly modern building (which makes) a welcome addition to the Conservation Area’.
The members of E&E Architects were involved in this project.
