Liverpool-based John McCall Architects has completed this youth enterprise and education hub in Denbigh, north Wales
Financed by the Big Lottery Fund, Denbighshire County Council and the Welsh Government, the £2.2million copper-clad building contains a Youth Enterprise Centre for 11 to 25 year olds, as well as an education space for Llandrillo College.
A concrete faced supported housing block, next to the centre, contains six self-contained apartments and staff sleep-over accommodation.
The two blocks are linked by a double-height glazed atrium that contains the reception for the building.
Recyclable materials were used throughout the build with solar power, grey water recycling and high levels of insulation allowing the building to achieve a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating.
