Image and Plan for proposed Willesden Cultural Centre

The proposed Willesden Cultural Centre (minus new flats)

Statement from the architects:

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and Architecture 519 are pleased to announce they have been selected for the Willesden Green Cultural Centre Redevelopment in Brent with Galliford Try Regeneration.

AHMM are leading the masterplan, which incorporates a new 4,000+ sq. m. library and cultural centre, with approximately 90 residential units by Architecture 519. A compact, atrium-centred scheme with a dramatic presence on the High Road will replace the existing 1980’s library, creating a community landmark in Brent. Activating the ground floor will be a cafĂ©, children’s library and ‘creative cluster’ of large spaces tied into the masterplan through a significant new public space by Gillespies Landscape.

The team, supported by URS Scott Wilson for structure and services, expect to submit a planning application in the spring, with completion in 2014 for the entire site.

  1. Interesting how these architects' graphics never show any cars, buses, vans, taxis or bikes, just a main street magically full of pedestrians.

  2. They also never mention how much they will make from the deal. Funny that....
