Hidden Homeless

Our entry for the Hidden Homeless competition, run by the New Horizons youth homelessness charity, aims to reestablish the links with the city that are often severed for homeless people. By re-opening the mothballed York Road tube station the building becomes a well-connected and civic hub. The building has rich, mixed-use programme offering supported living and opportunities for training and employment. Architecturally the type suggested by the plinth-like form of the locally listed station is completed as a modern palazzo .
