Haworth Tompkins gets started on South Bank - image

  • Comment
Work starts today on this £9.4 million mixed-use scheme on London's South Bank, designed by Haworth Tompkins.

Backed by socially aware developers the Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB), the development will house a family and children's centre, a 150-seat conference facility, a café, staff offices and a learning support centre.

The four-storey building, which is on the corner of Stamford Street and Coin Street, will boast a number of brightly coloured surfaces - the mix of which has been chosen by artist Antoni Malinowski.

Ian Tuckett, a director of CSCB, said: 'This development is part of a wider social enterprise approach to ensuring that all those living or working in this part of London have access to the facilities they need.'

The centre is part of the fourth side of the Iroko Housing Co-operative development - also designed by Haworth Tompkins - and is due to open in September next year.
