The architect's website says that this project , "... was won in a small architectural competition in December 2003, took ten years to realise, and was officially opened on Wednesday 11 December 2013 by the Princess Royal.  The 126-year-old local charity moved back to Rushworth Street in summer 2013 after three years operating from temporary premises. The new building provides a purpose-designed community centre and 36 shared ownership homes, developed by Notting Hill Housing Trust, with two floors of space for the settlement's educational activities and services for older people."
