Client: Paddington Arts Centre
Area: 12,000 sqft
Paddington Arts Centre is a vital, self funding, community hub, providing performance, rehearsal and gathering spaces for all members of the local community. Our scheme replaces part of the site with a new structure that accommodates multi functional spaces to be used by the community in a variety of ways, from pottery classes, to rehearsals for the Notting Hill Carnival, to community meetings.
The design follows Passive House design principles to ensure higher thermal performance, greatly reduced running costs and less plant space within the building. Its vibrant external form, utilising painted cast aluminium extrusions, expresses the positive and uplifting ethos of the centre and its role within the community.
This legacy development will allow the centre to remain self funding and put it on a firm footing for future generations.
