“GAZING OUT FROM THE FRONT DECK INTO THE SUNSHINE, AND WITH A WILD OVERGROWN GARDEN LAID OUT BEFORE YOU – DRUGS OR NO DRUGS, THERE ARE PROBABLY FEW PLACES YOU’D RATHER BE.”
JAN-CARLOS KUCHAREK, THE RIBA JOURNAL, AUGUST 2007
Cedars Road Annex is a "stepping stone" facility located to the rear of an existing homeless hostel in Clapham. It provides dayrooms, a kitchen, counselling rooms and studio flats all with south views across the beautiful lawned gardens.
The new building is an expressive sculptural form made from a single ribbon of structure which folds back on itself to create the floors and primary spaces.
