We are building an elegant new meeting and community space within the heart of Ealing.

Volunteer and Community Space at Pitzhanger

We are building an elegant new meeting and community space within the heart of Ealing for:

  • Our large and invaluable team of Pitzhanger volunteers to relax, socialise and access training and development activities
  • Local community groups to meet, gather and connect

The innovative design by Jo Townshend Architects (JTA) takes inspiration from John Soane’s designs at Pitzhanger to transform the courtyard space of Pitzhanger’s original Georgian lodge. JTA’s designs incorporate a roof light  to bring natural light into the space throughout the day, creating elegant ceiling architecture and drawing on the latest technology. The project is a continuation of three-year restoration of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, which was completed in March 2019.

The inspiring and comfortable space will have its own private entrance; essential meeting equipment including computers, projector and a board table; workspace for up to 16 volunteers, apprentices and interns.

The Volunteer and Community Space will open in 2022.

If you belong to a local community group in Ealing and are interested to hire our new space for your meetings and activities, please sign up here for the latest updates.

Help us furnish our new learning and meeting space at Pitzhanger for our volunteer team and local community groups. Your support will enable Pitzhanger’s volunteers to continue their important work to look after this historic Ealing site and keep it open for years to come. A lasting and unique way to write your name in history.

A donation of £250 will sponsor one chair and contribute to our fittings. 
A donation of £500 will sponsor a Soanian ceiling beam.

By sponsoring, you will:

  • Develop a deeper connection with Pitzhanger as one of our key Supporters
  • Have your name acknowledged on a special donor panel
  • Get invited to exclusive supporter events
  • Support Ealing community groups and activities
  • Help Pitzhanger’s Volunteers to continue their important work
