Dellow Day Centre – The creative charity center in London

British architects from the studio of Featherstone Young completed work on the center for the homeless, located in East London (UK). The name of this low-budget institutions with unique architecture – Dellow Day Centre.


The center was created to charity, and provides food, clothing and showers for the homeless in London. The institution is also intended to encourage creative expression and education of its visitors.

Dellow Day Centre includes bicycle shed, art, music and drama studio, located on the first and second floors. The third level is given over to office space center employees.

The new structure is located across the courtyard of the headquarters of a charitable organization, operating in London since the 1980s. On three sides of the center is surrounded by high neighboring buildings.

The first and third floors are dressed in yellow and green stripes embossed iron panels. Binder and simultaneously dividing point between the first and third levels of the space was on the second floor, visible through a glassed-in view of passers-by zig-zag facade.

 The upper floor has a terrace, a zigzag, which follows the line of the facade and has a hole, framed in a bright yellow asymmetrical form and transmits the light into the building. Simple, well-lit interiors of the charity center minimalist, but not devoid of creativity.
