Following Parkeray’s fit-out for The Office Group at Eccleston Square, architects SODA and our project team joined forces once again, this time for a community initiative on the behalf of their chosen charity, The Childhood Trust at the Venture Centre.
Based in North Kensington, the Venture Centre delivers children and adult community services. It is also home to the UK’s oldest adventure playground. The existing space was in need of a makeover and some TLC in order to best serve the community.
Introduced to the Venture Centre via The Childhood Trust, SODA volunteered their architectural skills to the scheme and enlisted our team of subcontractors to help to make their vision a reality. Glenfyne Services, King Décor and Bents Plant Hire led by our Project Director Jon Pye, dedicated their free time, equipment and expertise to the makeover, which took just over a week to complete. The scope of works included redecorating the entrance hall, joinery works to create additional storage space, as well as constructing a new reception and study area.
A great team effort from all has helped create a modern, warm and more welcoming environment for the community and enhanced the mixed-use space.
Delighted with the collaboration SODA commented: “Your generosity in time, materials and expertise have allowed us to transform a space used by so many less fortunate than ourselves, and make a positive difference to the day-to-day life of the community at the Venture Centre.”
Russell Potter RIBA, Director, SODA.
