Unity Hub at Craig Park, Enfield

  • Public & Arts
  • London Borough of Enfield
  • £3.1m

Award winning Unity [email protected] Park is a Myplace funded youth-led project for young people 13 to 19. The Hub's new building is a remodelled and re-clad existing two storey youth club with a large new two storey extension.

Designed collectively with the Hub's young people, the building features a series of functional and dynamic spaces ranging from a climbing cave to dance studio and media labs including a space for reflection and an outdoor multi-sport games surface.

The extended existing building has been transformed with the backlit polycarbonate cladding to unify new and existing and gain a role within the community. Colour change LED lighting can be programmed by the Hub's young people and glows, beacon-like, in its park-edge setting.

...The way it metaphorically and physically breaks down barriers with a transparent appearance is extremely successful, providing glimpses into the activities within the Unity Hub...
