Royal Victoria Dock Village Hall

Newham, London

In an urban environment, the village hall can help provide the social glue for community development. Furthermore, as one of the main public buildings, its accessibility should be equalled by its transparency of purpose.

Designed for a sloping site, the Royal Victoria Dock Village Hall incorporates a double height concourse along the length of the building. This allows direct access to both floor levels, whilst gathering the separate uses into a coherent whole.
