This contemporary building sits within the Grade 1 listed courtyard space of Pitzhanger’s original Georgian lodge. It was designed and built by a project team led by Jo Townshend Architects (JTA), which combined cutting-edge digital technology and sustainable practices.
The space has been inspired by many of Pitzhanger’s extraordinary features designed by Sir John Soane including roof lanterns and the play of light, buildings within buildings and ceiling architecture, in addition to the use of innovative technologies, as Soane would have also employed during his time.
It provides Pitzhanger’s large and invaluable team of volunteers with a dedicated area to relax, socialise and access training and development activities. It is also intended for local community and charity groups to meet, gather and connect.
We are very grateful to the following funders, whose generous support has made this project possible:
The Foyle Foundation
The Michael Bishop Foundation
Garfield Weston Foundation
Bernard Sunley Foundation
The Pilgrim Trust
The Architectural Heritage Fund
