This building lies within a conservation area and in the centre of a terrace fronting onto a park. It was the first purpose designed African-Caribbean Mental Health Therapy Centre and provides eleven residential bedrooms. It is a four storey brick building with steel frame inserted behind an existing facade.
Flexibly planned ground floor common areas allow for various layouts. An internal street space is formed on the second floor beneath a long radiused skylight. An independent rear garden room for private/group counselling nestles beneath a landscaped roof.
A spiral and tapering steel stair suspended from the roof rises from the ground to the second floor level. This circulation is contained within a top-lit four storey clear volume which opens out onto a sunny secluded rear garden. At the rear a triple height bay window rises from the basement to the first floor with a double height volume internal connecting ground and first floor rooms. This bay window floods the interior with natural light.
