GREENWOOD CENTRE


  • THE GREENWOOD CENTRE HOUSES CAMDEN'S FIRST CENTRE FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING (CIL), RUN BY DISABLED PEOPLE FOR DISABLED PEOPLE, OFFERING SPECIALIST ADVICE AND SUPPORT, OPPORTUNITIES FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, AND SPACES TO LEARN NEW SKILLS, BE ACTIVE, FORM RELATIONSHIPS AND GROW IN INDEPENDENCE.

  • The building’s range of flexible learning and activity spaces includes a multi-purpose hall, meeting and interview rooms, a training kitchen and café, IT resources, fitness and physiotherapy spaces, arts and craft studios and a music room, and on each level, there are landscaped gardens for various uses. A demonstration flat will showcase new technologies that can assist in independent living. A number of the spaces can also be hired for use by the wider community, allowing people who wouldn’t ordinarily use the centre to discover it, and consolidating its presence and identity within Camden.

    Greenwood Centre brings under one roof a number of key services previously spread across several sites, providing support with mental ill-health and learning disabilities.

  • To develop the brief, Camden Council and our team partnered in an innovative consultation with care specialists and end-user groups to explore ways that the building could fully meet the diverse and specific needs of all the users involved.

    We developed a variety of techniques to communicate their design concepts: using simultaneous speech-to-text interpretation, signing, use of tactile maps and models and the use of carefully designed ‘easy-read’ format presentations to facilitate the consultation with a remarkable degree of success.
