The project comprises the demolition of an existing church hall in Sydenham and the construction of a three-storey youth centre with part basement. Architect is RCKa.

The TNG My Place youth centre incorporates a number of innovations such as CLT timber wall structure, translucent rainscreen cladding to external walls, solar panels and an ethylene tetraflouro-ethylene (ETFE) foil cushion roof system to allow natural light into the building.  Energy efficiency elements will help TNG My Place achieve a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.

Work has just commenced and is expected to conclude early in 2013.
