ONE MINET COMMUNITY SKATEPARK
We were asked to design a new community building to be located within a skatepark in Essex as part of a larger housing development. The building will house a café, a clubroom for the skaters, community run shop and a flexible space which can be rented out by a variety of local organisations across the local area, such as soft play, film clubs, theatre and dance groups, martial arts and youth clubs. The building will be fully accessible with anamorphically projected signage at the two entrance in hyper sized graphics. The star shaped plan maximises the views and is lifted up to allow the skaters to colonise the roof. The building will be extremely energy efficient, passively cooled and geo thermally heated meaning that it will be very cheap for the community to run.
