After 60 years in its original Covent Garden location, London’s Africa Centre has relocated to an impressive new space in Southwark, home to the city’s largest Black African community. A center for exploring African culture and cultivating community, the Africa Centre worked assiduously to develop a new home that would express the best of African design traditions and to foster a sense of pride in African heritage. Just as the centre is conceived as a beacon of Pan-African culture, a symbol of both unity and diversity within the continent, the project was also the result of a collaboration between several parties, as Freehaus worked closely with interior designer Tola Ojuolape, structural engineers Price & Myers, art curator Alexia Walker, and brand designer Mam’gobozi Design Factory. As a result, the interiors are rich and layered, working on various scales and combining a carefully considered palette of colours, textures and furniture, inspired by and often sourced from the African continent.
