Nazareth House: Community Centre with youth and childcare services.


The aim of this project was to examine a building which is currently in use as a nursing home and convert it into a community centre with youth and childcare services. After investigating the local community and activities connected with youths, I decided to base my concept on popup books. The colour palette was originally inspired by the green panelled windows in the chosen building and has since expanded to include shades of yellow and blue. Accompanied by tones of white a modern and sophisticated environment is created. This centre can now be viewed as the local social hub for the whole of the community whilst offering youth and childcare facilities that are fresh and up to date.
