Open House London 2015 visits Renaissance

,

London’s largest annual architecture and design festival to visit Renaissance Leisure Centre

Open House London 2015, now in its 23rd year, was originally set up to promote the awareness and appreciation of London’s built environment. The goal of this annual event is to give the public access to buildings they might not otherwise have been permitted to visit.

Open House aims to engage the public with the space to “help change perceptions, break down barriers and inspire people to demand high-quality places for current and future generations.” The festival offers Londoners a chance to explore and learn about the Capital’s most famous buildings.

As part of the Open House weekend taking place from 18-19 September 2015, the festival will visit the Glass Mille Leisure Centre, part of Barratt London’s Renaissance development in SE13.

Renaissance is a mix of studios, one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses, with parking for all two-bedroom apartments. Renaissance has brought nearly 800 new homes to Lewisham, along with landscaped public gardens and a striking new leisure centre and swimming pool.

Designed by artist Phil Coy, the Glass Mill Leisure Centre features a striking interactive glass façade reacting to movement and sound outside the building, changing colour to create an endlessly varying visual spectacle. Inside you'll find two swimming pools, a climbing wall, a well-equipped gym offering a range of fitness classes and a café.
