Corby Civic Hub Arts Centre Case Study

Corby Civic Hub Arts Centre Case Study

This case study examines the building of a major regeneration programme to revitalise a former steel making town in Northamptonshire into an arts centre.
The design Hawkins\Brown proposed for the Corby Civic Hub was sustainable in conception, combining the original council brief for separate civic and arts facilities into a more vibrant whole. The project reduced embodied energy in materials use and servicing, and created a building that is used 24 hours a day and works hard for its community.
The building is adaptable and materials chosen are durable. It is predominantly daylit and naturally ventilated, while providing well designed, comfortable internal environments. It is the only theatre venue in the UK to receive an “Excellent” BREEAM rating.
