Chandos East Community Hub
Location: Stratford, London
"Adams and Sutherland promptly and professionally enabled the successful completion of a centre which I think looks fantastic and I am sure will be a real asset to the local area."
Tim Hunt, Project Manager LDA
The new building is sited within an existing open space and creates two new walled gardens, one for older children and families, the other for pre-school children and shared with the existing Chandos Community Centre. Internally, the building is arranged around a central top-lit hall which provides space for collective activity and leads directly to a series of community spaces, all of which open onto the enclosed gardens.
A rigorous strategy aimed at achieving low-carbon impact includes the specification of a green roof, ground source heat pump and super-insulated breathing wall system.
