Stage 3

This design project aims to provide Chatham with a Wellbeing Centre that integrates nature with support to tackle Medway’s current mental health crisis. The current site of Chatham shows signs of neglect, with unused warehouses and vast empty concrete spaces. The plan is to regenerate the abandoned car showroom by recladding the existing front and replacing the rear empty warehouses, with two extensions embracing a living courtyard, overlooked by verandas that lead off into a host of different spaces. Natural light and a connection with nature are the focuses of the building, with the use of sustainable materials, organic colours, and comfortable furnishings. The transparency of the building allows visual connections to the activities within, provoking public curiosity, awareness and possible involvement. This project also expands outside the given site to tackle some of the nearby unused concrete spaces.
