A new hybrid advertising space and community garden, designed by Wildstone for client Clear Channel’s premium Storm brand, has transformed a treacherous corner in London into a vibrant community space. The formerly derelict site in Lambeth Palace Conservation Area had remained undeveloped for over twenty years and was eventually hoarded up. Anti-social behaviour was a longstanding issue, prompting Community Safety officers to request that the landowners investigate additional security measures and productive temporary uses for the development site. Innovative structures and urban space designers, Wildstone, have created a scheme to change this crime ridden space by transforming it into a publically open,working community garden, whilstrein stating the site’s original function as an advertising space.

Working on behalf of the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (LCCCP), pH+ architects have received planning permission for an extension to their new premises, in the London Borough of Haringey, which will transform the way the charity works with children and the wider public. The children, young people and wider community will benefit from a range of new services and facilities, including a hydrotherapy pool, which have been funded by the generosity of private foundations.
Through a lengthy consultation process, the architects have worked with the charity to develop a centre with an inclusive design; one that helps children in particular develop in a series of differing environments designed to stimulate the senses through sounds, smells, light and varying surfaces. The architecture therefore becomes a tool to nurture young children. For example, ramps and lifts are important for accessibility but stairs will be employed at various key moments as part of the children’s walking programme. An external walkway wraps around the building, offering views out to the woodland landscape and allowing for movement through the fresh air. This walkway is enclosed by a timber screen which itself becomes a giant xylophone for children to play with. Sections of the cladding will be reflective so that children can observe their own movements.

The structure will be built in a strategic area of the historic quarter EUR on a 55,000-square-meter built surface.
The design concept is briefly explained by three images: the “Theca”, the “Cloud” and the “blade” of the Hotel.
The “Theca”, longitudinally oriented, is the container, with steel structure and glass double-façade, that encloses the Cloud.
