The Pitzhanger Hub, known as the Rachel Darroch Room, is an elegant new meeting and learning space for our volunteers and community.

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:

Jeremy Darroch

The Foyle Foundation

The Michael Bishop Foundation

Garfield Weston Foundation

Bernard Sunley Foundation

The Pilgrim Trust

The Architectural Heritage Fund
