OPEN Youth Venue, Norwich

Our scheme for the Open Youth Trust has transformed a redundant grand banking hall in the centre of Norwich into a 24-hour community centre for young people. Inside a landscape of inner skin, which clings to the original architecture, creates an array of walkways and platforms to accommodate a range of activities: areas for sports, socialising and events, and quiet spaces for study, reflection and escape.
