HUB 67

HUB 67 01

From the Architect,

Hub 67 is a community centre that is designed for three to five years use and is constructed with recycled material from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The building’s façade and the chandelier in the main space are designed and built with the local community. This local participation at the heart of the project has given the community a sense of ownership and has helped to embed the new building into the area. Designing the façade with community has ensured that the building is sympathetic but also enriches the area.

The project maximises and embraces the reuse of material to produce a high quality is constructed using metal frame cabins used in the Games fixed together with a new external thermal lining and facade. Meeting building regulations and limiting the use of new materials and the deconstruction of existing structures in the creation of the new building required an innovative approach not only to the design and the construction but also to the specification and tender documentation.
