The new Holborn House, on Emerald Street passageway, replaces the previously rundown, inaccessible building. The new building reflects the strength and history of our community, makes the centre and its critical work visible, and creates a welcoming and pleasurable place for everyone.

Holborn House, designed by local practice 6a architects, is an open, outward-looking building providing tall, sunlit new spaces and facilities designed for dual use of community activities and event hires.

The new building has a big character and a big heart -
