GREAT LUMLEY COMMUNITY CENTRE
Northern Bureau for Architecture were commissioned to prepare designs for the complete re-configuration and refurbishment of the well used community centre in the town of Great Lumley. Tracing patterns of occupation of the varied groups and users we explored ways of increasing the flexibility of spaces whilst making the minimum changes to the floorplan layout to maximise the efficiency of the refurbishment.
We also prioritised a 'fabric first' approach to upgrading the building's thermal efficiency and reduce on-going running costs in order to contribute to establishing a sustainable business plan for the future.
