Haileybury Youth Centre

Stepney, Tower Hamlets, London

The Haileybury Youth Centre is to deliver world class youth facilities for the young people of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The centre will be managed and staffed by the council's Youth and Community Services. The design was drawn up in consultation with Youth and Community Services to ensure meet young people's needs.
 
The aim is to continue to build on the success of the existing Haileybury Youth Centre with its varied activities programmes such as football, pool, music, table tennis, cricket, hockey, archery, cooking, etc. The aim is to establish itself within the immediate local community as a social venue, youth support centre and ‘after school club’. Ultimately it will be a centre that the local Stepney Community will support and enjoy. Some of the key aspirations of the scheme are:

  • A place for young people to come and have fun
  • Daylit, cheerful and open atmosphere
  • Clear legibility from first point of entry
  • Allow uses and spaces to flow into one another
  • Create a sense of safety and connectivity
