New £3.5m Sydenham youth centre scoops major architectural award
A newly-opened £3.5m Sydenham youth and community centre has scooped a major architectural award.
TNG centre, in Wells Park Road, won a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) award - celebrating the best new architecture in the capital – at a ceremony on May 6.
The centre opened in June last year and includes a state-of-the-art recording studio, complete with sound booth and mixing deck, and a training kitchen where young people can learn culinary skills.
Lewisham Council worked with architects RCKa, who also won RIBA’s Emerging Architect of the Year award, local young people and partner organisations in 2009 to develop the plans.
Funding for the project was secured from the government’s Myplace fund.
RIBA regional winners will be put forward for the RIBA National Awards in June.
