Dagenham Central – Library and Mixed-use Regeneration

Project Description
LCE Architects, in association with Bissett Adams Branding and Interiors, were one of two shortlisted PFI finalists on this Mixed-use development, including One-Stop-Shop, Café/Bookshop, 52 Residential units, and ‘Express’ Supermarket. We have chosen to create a dynamic, landmark civic building for Dagenham as an integral part of a larger development. Our approach here was one of rigorous analysis and creative collaboration to produce a building that is appropriate to its context, sustainable, cost effective and deliverable. The siting and massing of these elements is deliberately designed to fit into the existing urban grain.
