Located at the threshold between the residential and commercial zones of emerging Alconbury Weald, three- storey Alconbury Weald Club sits beneath two exaggerated roof canopies that create sheltered community spaces. The building’s structure is cross-laminated timber (CLT), using a system of 4.5 to 6m wide structural bays. The vertical order of curtain wall glazing and dark-stained timber cladding echo the neighbouring Alconbury Incubator building. However, the timber cladding runs vertically, in a slip-and-miss arrangement akin to a Scandinavian summer house. The building accommodates the offices of Urban & Civic, a public café, a meeting hall and a gym but its generous volumes and exposed finishes mean that it is able to adapt to new uses as the community continues to grow.
