Hewitt Studios have just completed the HCA Hub building which forms a new front-end facility for the Hereford College of Arts.


The proposal delivers much-needed cafe, exhibition and admin space in a striking new volume. With a strong sustainability agenda, the structure is formed of glu-laminated and mass-timber and the space is naturally ventilated and day-lit. A reflective pool is used to both animate the space and mediate sunlight. Externally, the building is clad in anodised aluminium and western red cedar, whilst comprehensive landscape scheme roots the building to the site, creating a series of external social and exhibition spaces for the College and its students.

Floor Plan

Project Architect, Paul Younger states that 'the Art College client demanded an innovative, design-led solution and this has led to a the development of a dynamic structural form which provides drama and flexibility in equal measure'.
