Salvation Army Hostel, Newcastle
Ryder & Yates (1974). Unlisted
This centre, originally built to house 184 men, incorporates dormitories, day rooms, restaurant, facilities for old people and a small hospital. Constructed of blue brindle brickwork, with narrow strip windows carefully organised to allow for maximum flexibility, it is accessed by two curved ramps under a boomerang-shaped canopy redolent of Lubetkin’s Highpoint Two. The Salvation Army recently lost a bid to take over Homeless Services in Newcastle, and so have vacated the building, which is under threat from potential redevelopment or unsympathetic alteration.
We have submitted a listing application which is currently under assessment.
