After ten years of planning and development we were delighted to be able to open the doors of LandAid House and welcome our first residents in May 2021. This is a historic moment, not just for us as an organisation, but for London as a whole, as this bespoke 146-person hostel is the first purpose-built homeless accommodation to be constructed in the city for a decade.
Designed pro-bono by the award winning architects Levitt Bernstein, the building seeks to raise the standard of homeless accommodation with a sleek contemporary design, light airy communal spaces and soon-to-be-completed onsite gym. Arranged over a combination of one, two, five and six-bed flats with shared kitchens, the building will benefit around 10,000 young people over the next sixty years as they transition from homelessness to independent living.
This has been a mammoth effort to get to this point and we would like to thank all of our donors and funding partners who have contributed to this £25m project and have made our vision for LandAid House possible. Special thanks to LandAid whose support has been recognised through the naming of the building.
