Hi, I am Hayley. Being a recent interior design graduate, I am keen to begin a career within the design...

Youth crime is an ever-growing problem within modern day society with it regularly occurring all over the country, so designing a community hub space where young people can visit is a great concept, giving them a comfortable environment to receive support linking with their studies, alongside one-to-one help with homework, coursework and revising for exams, as well as personal tutoring. This space will also provide interactive activities such as pool tables, to expand people’s social skills with other students and increase their communication skills also.

The aim of this building will be to encourage young people between the ages of 15-22, to visit if they are worried or anxious about not having the correct amount of support within their lives and also with their studies whether that be at home or in school, whether they come from disadvantaged backgrounds, single parent families or non-working parents, etc. the support will always be available when needed.

The Hub is located within the heart of Bishop’s Stortford town centre and high street with a view of the River Stort from its windows. Bishop’s Stortford is a market town located on the border between Essex and Hertfordshire just West of the M11 motorway. Close by there are multiple supermarkets, food shops, homeware stores, cafes, restaurants, bars and fast food places. During weekends the high street is also home to the very popular food market stalls, raising money for small independent businesses, selling fresh produce and meats which are locally sourced.

The main inspiration towards the design of The Hub, was the River Stort situated alongside the building. Bringing a sense of calmness and tranquility to the environment, ensuring the guests were relaxed and focused for high achievements towards their learning. Alongside this, bright and vibrant colours were also incorporated within the multiple learning spaces of the building, to encourage visitors’ creativity and imagination.

Give this some love
