The Dellow Day Center is designed by Featherstone Young. The color-infused activity center is located in London's East End. Converted from an old storage building, this vivid structure features angular green and yellow perforated cladding that makes up its facade.

This facade lets natural light into the center's interior while offering its inhabitants privacy. Fusing fun aesthetics with purposeful desingn, this contemporary community space houses charity Providence Row's arts and activity center that aims to support London's low-income housing and homeless communities.

From visual and performing arts to essentials like food, clothing and showers, the Dellow Day Center is changing individuals' lives one day at a time. The bright and expressive building is eye-catching both for its design and its importance to the underprivileged urban community.
