The Peckham Project aims to give a voice to the community where residents and local artists can feel represented and have ownership of the public space. Multi-function exhibition spaces and a hall enable connectivity and inclusiveness. Coworking spaces and services located in the building provide the conditions to exchange and develop ideas whilst generating income to fund ongoing and future community programs. The building employs a range of passive environmental strategies to construct an environmentally sustainable community space. The design makes the building adaptable to climate change, integrating natural ventilation and solar shading strategies to keep running costs and carbon footprint to a minimum.
