The JCC pavilion includes a library and cafe, auditorium, classrooms and screening room - as well as a nursery and administrative offices.
The architects said the scheme: ‘creates a new and activated space on Finchley Road, housing the centre’s many functions in an elegant three-storey linear pavilion set back from the road and overlooking the new landscaped piazza.
‘This generous contribution to the streetscape is central to the project, with the piazza working as an ‘external room’ to amenities on the ground floor and as a public space linking the centre’s activities to the street and the community beyond.‘
