RCKa enterprise hub a ‘model for empty council buildings’

RCKa's Granville Enterprise Hub in South Kilburn

Church hall converted into community centre for £650,000

RCKa has completed a mixed-use workspace and community hub in South Kilburn which it says could be a model for other local authorities.

The practice described The Granville, housed in a 19th-century church hall owned by Brent council, as “a truly ambitious example of mixed-use, community-led regeneration”.

It provides affordable workspace for local entrepreneurs and incorporates existing uses ranging from a children’s centre to a community kitchen.
