Centre 404, Holloway

Anne Thorne Architects Partnership
Community + Faith, London

This centre provides support and facilities for children with learning difficulties and their families. Passivhaus details were used in the design of the new extension and combined with insulation upgrades to the existing building, significantly improved thermal performance was achieved. The existing building was formerly a large house which had been extended with an in-situ concrete framed building. The introduction of a lift, new stairs and rationalization of the internal spaces has created much improved environments for users and staff.
