Headcorn Community Centre

PROJECT BRIEF:

The brief was for a new build community centre. We were asked to refurbish existing village hall, create a main hall to seat 300 people, liaise with and accommodate needs of many user groups and assist in the preparation of grant applications.

KEY ISSUES:

  • The key issues of this project were that the design needed to fit in with the rural village location.
  • The budgetary constraints.
  • The application of sustainable agenda.

SOLUTIONS & SUCCESSES:

  • The close collaboration between Cyma, client and project team.
  • The sustainable design audit with the Interreg program improves the environmental impact of the building.
  • The green oak weatherboarding reduces on going maintenance costs.
  • The good natural day lighting reduces the running costs.
  • The vaulted shape to the main hall provides very good acoustics.
