Feilden Clegg Bradley (FCB) has won a competition to design this £7 million New Deal centre in run-down New Cross, south-east London. The practice saw off some leading offices to land the commission, effectively for a completely new building type. The other shortlisted fi rms were; Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Buschow Henley, Cottrell Vermeulen with Sarah Wigglesworth and Penoyre & Prasad. This group was whittled down from 72 expressions of interest. FCB's scheme aims to 'anticipate' government policy for integrated healthcare and community facilities. The brief includes a doctors' surgery, a pharmacy, a dentist, a library, a theatre, a café, housing and a new public space, to become one of the London Mayor Ken Livingstone's 100 Spaces For All. New Cross Gate New Deal for Communities, a 10-year governmentfunded regeneration programme, has the project at its heart. Jonathan McDowell of McDowell and Benedetti, an adviser to the panel, said he was pleased with the outcome. 'Each of the schemes had different aspects that were particularly applauded, which did make evaluation harder. The selected scheme combines a bold immediacy with a flexible and open engagement with the project's complexities, ' he said.
