A new community café housed in a transformed 1920s municipal toilet block in Southall. The café forms a key part of a new public space, Southall Manor House Square, designed by DK-CM as part of the Southall Great Streets programme.
The café has been designed to improve the usage, facilities and natural surveillance of its context, whilst providing programme to the new space and public toilet facilities to the public at large. The design intervention is primarily a real timber-frame extension to the 'mock' timber-frame of the original building, itself a tribute to the ancient Manor House which sits adjacent across the new square.
