Levitt Bernstein sends charity HQ in for planning

  • Comment
Levitt Bernstein has released the first images of its £23 million headquarters for charity Jewish Care, which goes in for planning this week.

The 10,500m2 campus scheme in Golders Green, north London, integrates a community centre, a 54-bed care home and 45 'extra care' flats, plus offices for Jewish Care staff.

The current headquarters, a hotch-potch of old Victorian buildings and later additions, is to be flattened to make way for the five-storey scheme.

Project architect Mark Keegan explained that design has been driven by site context and orientation.

'The form of the building has been developed to acknowledge the local street character and to provide a sympathetic and contemporary response,' he said.

Levitt Bernstein saw off a shortlist which included Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands to secure the scheme, which is expected to start on site in spring 2008.
