using recycled material from the london 2012 olympic and paralympic games, london based firm LYN atelier has constructed hub 67. the community center located in hackney wick has become a local focus, encouraging residents and the younger generation to become involved with educational activities and improving skills. the space itself caters to all of these programs, and evokes a raw and recycled aesthetic on the exterior and interior.
the building is designed for three to five years use and embraces a temporary and recycled aesthetic
the project is temporary construction, composed of two levels with plywood interiors and an overall flexible space. limiting the use of new materials, hub 67 explores the reuse of material along with keeping to the ‘legacy’ that the 2012 games promised. furthermore, by bringing people together through built space, this will inherently strengthen and improve the local community.
