Click Youth Technology Centre, Waltham Forest

About The Project

In contrast to the discreet interventions in sensitive sites so often required by our clients, the Waltham Forest Housing Action Trust was keen to have a landmark building for the Click Youth Technology Centre. Click is a forward looking addition to the life of the Leytonstone community, providing IT facilities and training for local young people. The building's unusual elliptical shape is a reflection of the teenagers’ desire for an architecturally ‘modern’ building, as well as a response to the nature of the site; it makes it stand out as a landmark in the high street setting and creates a sympathetic gateway that embraces the new Jubilee Park located directly to the east.
