New Horizon Youth Centre
Adam Khan's New Horizon Youth Centre in King's Cross, London, supports the homeless and vulnerable youngsters in this gritty part of central London. The key driver of the design was the emotional security to be found in a welcoming space. Khan's subtle proposal has created a dramatic, barn-like space, allowing elements to be used socially in different ways. 'The Bursary was crucial in unlocking this project - limiting the competition to recently established practices was a brave and generous move and certainly gave us our crucial first break.'
