Green light for CF Møller’s centre for adults with learning disabilities

  • Comment

Lambeth Council has approved CF Møller Architects’ south London centre for adults with learning disabilities

The Danish practice, which has offices in east London, received planning permission for its Coburg Crescent scheme in Tulse Hill.

A three-storey building will house a day centre service as well as residential care accommodation and a community space.

The scheme will also feature therapy rooms, a café and a shop, while an existing shop will be redeveloped into accommodation for a resource centre worker.

CF Møller said the building’s form would be ‘articulated as a sheltering courtyard with an active, residential scale street frontage’.

A large sloping roof ‘embraces all the different parts and components of the building within one single volume’, according to the practice.

CF Møller London associate partner Rolf Nielsen said: ‘We are feeling proud of our contribution to making the world better and more dignified for people with learning disabilities.

‘We are particularly keen to ensure that the proposed service facilities move away from older institutional models. We understand it proves essential to provide the maximum flexibility for future service provision and integrate the service users as much as possible within the wider community.’
