1st Place Children & Parents' CentreEdit profile
Avanti Architects won in open competition this project for a new Children and Parents’ Centre in the Aylesbury Plus area within the boundaries of Burgess Park in the London Borough of Southwark. The Centre provides 50 full day care spaces for babies and children up to the age of five years with training, workshop and crèche facilities for parents and members of the wider community. The overall masterplan for the centre covers a cluster of buildings including a biogas plant, offices and educational facilities for Sustainable Energy Action, artists’ workshops and a parks and maintenance depot for Burgess Park. An important component of the project is to assist in the practice and education of environmental sustainability.
