Item Details
A community built project for a community led charity.

The N1C centre is the new home for the Somalian Youth Development Resource Centre (SYDRC) and the Dragon Hall Trust who are both charities providing education and activities at and from the new community building. The centre piece of the project was a seating and reception desk fit out designed to be oiled and assembled purely by volunteers at the centre, which significantly reduced construction costs and also embedded the construction process into their own ethos of being for the community and delivered by the community.

Initially billed as a project on a tight budget, we set out designing a scheme which centred around their charity ethos – the community. Through employing the use of their volunteers we designed a scheme that was numbered and easy to construct removing the need for a professional fit out company. This not only embedded a sense of story in the space, it also reduced their initial budget figures by 78%.

London, United Kingdom

Vita Architecture is an innovative and progressive practice, experienced in assisting clients imagine, craft and realise beautiful projects to not only meet but exceed expectations. Our approach is to maximise the potential of every site and carefully craft the design of each project to enhance the experience for the users.

The practice was set up in Surrey in 2016. The design work was based on personal approach to individual projects, with careful attention to detail and experience of the building, allowing the clients to be part of the design process and creating spaces that are customised for those who inhabit them.

We take great pride in the considerate blend of imagination and realisation of our projects which we meticulously develop by applying leading digital technologies, model making, sustainable design and interior design solutions.

Additional projects ranging all over London have led to a new work space set up in Brixton to assist the clients based outside Surrey in 2017. Currently the practice is working on a number of mixed use projects in and around London.

Available for commission/custom work
