Church Community Centre and Youth Centre in Lenting

This lightweight, largely prefabricated timber structure was erected close to the site boundary, with the hall and group rooms overlooking the garden. Access from the road is via an elevated walkway, with the entrance to the community centre at upper floor level. The large hall can be divided into smaller units by sliding partitions that disappear into recesses in the wall. The youth centre on the lower floor has its own entrance, but is linked with the main foyer by an internal staircase. The walls are in timber stud construction braced on both faces with OSB sheets. The roof over the hall is a nailed beam structure, while the floors are in a stacked plank form of construction. The external walls and foyer walls are clad in larch boarding in a warm red tone.
