It is developed in a sculptural way, with bands of timber and resin adopting different geometries and curving up and down over the roof plane.
FRIENDSHIP HOUSE MacCormac Jamieson Prichard Client: London Hostels Association The building is tidy and uses a gated entrance to create a secure environment.
It is superbly insulated from an adjacent railway. Space-enhancing mirrors and clever lighting are used in the interior.
