TRADA Case Study: Stonebridge Hillside Hub
The Stonebridge Hillside Hub is a key scheme in the continuing regeneration of the Stonebridge Estate in West London. It is a major resource for the 4,000 strong culturally-diverse local community; it aims to bring people together, improve local health, enable educational, leisure and community initiatives, encourage investment in the local housing market, provide much-needed retail space and give a new focus to a previously deprived part of the borough.
The mixed-use building provides a health centre, a community centre, a convenience store, a café, open-market and shared-ownership apartments, private car parking, a garden and a public piazza. Extensive consultation with the users and the local community was a hallmark of this scheme’s development.
The case study describes the design, the timber cladding and internal glulam structure, as well as internal timber lining and environmental performance.
