Buckley Gray Yeoman has started work on the refurbishment of a homeless centre in Victoria, south London
The project to upgrade and repair St Vincent’s centre will preserve and reinstate the neo-romanesque features of the centre’s three adjoining buildings which were constructed between 1863 and 1913.
The centre, which provides day and residential facilities to people affected by homelessness, includes 16 self-contained flats, offices, conference and meeting facilities and support services.
A new canopy will be added to the entrance to improve the building’s appearance and give it a recognisable prescence on the street.
The scheme will also see an existing brick extension replaced with a glazed box creating a double height winter garden.
Matt Yeoman, director of Buckley Gray Yeoman said: ‘Our refurbishment will provide a major boost to the The Passage, providing them with the best facilities from which to continue their work.’
