Text description provided by the architects. Hub 67 is a community centre in Hackney Wick, constructed with recycled material from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The building is designed for three to five years use and embraces a temporary and recycled aesthetic adding to the local architectural palette with a high quality design.
The façade and a central chandelier were designed and built with the local community, creating ownership at the heart of the project.
Hub 67 was a pilot project exploring the reuse of material from the Games.
Meeting building regulations and limiting the use of new materials, and de-constructing existing structures to create something new required an innovative approach to design, construction, specification and tendering.
