Holborn Community Centre Redevelopment
1 September, 2020
Quinn London are working in collaboration with RIBA award winning 6a Architects to improve the community facilities for Holborn Community Association (HCA). The HCA has over 100 years of history, first as Holborn boy’s club in 1920, and since 1989 as Holborn Community Association (HCA), a grassroots neighbourhood organisation, where it has flourished under the care of HCA’s wholly voluntary community board.
The HCA has undertaken an impressive plan to redevelop their existing 60-year-old Bedford House Centre, which is no longer fit for purpose for the local community. Their current building was in a state of disrepair and was inaccessible for older people and those with physical disabilities.
Holborn Community Association plays a crucial role in providing services to the local community, and in an area as diverse as Holborn is fundamentally important to the local community. The newly designed building will mean that the HCA will continue to be home to social, sporting, and creative arts in the neighbourhood. The new low energy, fully accessible building will allow HCA to increase their support from 1000 to 1500 people a week. Providing much needed vital services to the Holborn Community.
