  • Architecture
  • Charlie Ratchford Resource Centre is an extra care housing and day centre in the heart of Camden, designed by PRP to create a hub for the local community and service users. Its brick elevations, in the Camden vernacular, respond sensitively to the Victorian housing surrounding the site.

    Above the ground floor are one- and two-bed self-contained apartments with a majority accessed from an open deck, which allows the dual aspect benefits of natural light and cross ventilation.

    The six-storey building creates an architectural focal point, marking the entrance from Chalk Farm Road.
