Entry Description: Working in partnership, Watford Football Club Community and Sports Education Trust, Harrow Council and LOM architecture and design, secured funding and planning permission for the 4.2m project to re- develop Cedars Youth and Community Centre in Harrow, London. The project consists of a sports and community building, external all weather pitch and play space. The design was developed in close consultation with local residents and youth groups to address the sensitive nature of the site's parkland setting and deliver a state-of-the-art facility built around the local community's needs. The design draws inspiration from the surrounding context, incorporating a palette of natural materials including green roofs, a slatted timber facade and gabion walls. The rich, robust and low maintenance building is also extremely energy efficient. The sustainable design results in CO2 emissions that are half that of best practice and 25% of the previous building which was less than half the size.
