Ex-Rogers star reveals new Fulham community centre

  • Comment

Jo Cowen Architects has unveiled proposals for a new pavilion-like community centre in Fulham 

PLANS

The proposal by the practice founded by ex-Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners architect Jo Cowen, will be built as a not-for-profit community centre on a derelict site which she spotted around the corner from her practice’s office.

The plans include a pavilion, a kitchen garden and an outdoor classroom, and would provide space for rent by sports clubs, businesses, societies and individuals.

Beneath the community centre, a basement level will act as an open-plan office space for start-up business with desk spaces, meeting areas, toilet, showers and a kitchen.

The building will be surrounded by garden spaces with areas of grass for children to play and secluded seating.

Jo Cowen, commented: ‘Waldemar Gardens provides us with an opportunity to get directly involved in improving our local area. We have the opportunity to turn a disused site into a space for everyone to enjoy in a variety of different ways. Good design should serve the people and I believe that this project will enable us to do this.’
