Raine House Community Centre
On Site, January 2019  

Raine House is a Grade II* listed 1719 charity school found by the philanthropist Henry Raine that was severely damaged during the Second World War but brought back into use in the late 1970's as a community centre.

 

The proposal looks make essential repairs to the historic fabric of the building & reintroduce historic plan form of the building, whilst modernising its interior. At ground floor a new concrete bar will sit in the main hall whilst back of house spaces are consolidated into each wing. A new lift will provide level access to the first floor, where new dance and rehearsal studios will be provided in the main central space, with a smaller studio in the Western Wing.

 

Work is expected to start in October 2018 with the works aiming to be complete by Summer 2019 in time for the 300th anniversary of the building
