A new building for multi-purpose use by a charity organisation, hosting a range of educational, arts and environment based programmes

A new-build in the midst of a stunning rose garden, in the ancient Forest of Dean, within the grounds of a Grade II-listed building and adjacent to a scheduled ancient monument.

The Asha Centre is a UK charity working for the empowerment of young people, sustainable development, peace and reconciliation. A hub of inter-cultural activities, hosting a range of educational, arts and environment based programmes.

The scheme is a multi-purpose building to accommodate the client’s activities. It sits within the landscape discretely and quietly, reflecting the spiritual, multi-faith nature of the organisation.

Sustainable and natural materials and technologies include a sedum roof, ‘Glaster’ lime render (using recycled glass and coloured pink to reflect the local sandstone), glulam-timber frame and an air source heat pump.
