TINTINHULL VILLAGE HALL
Located within a conservation area with a number of Listed Buildings nearby, the design looked to create a flexible, practical building to sustain and enhance the character and setting of the Conservation Area whilst acting as a focal point in the community and strengthening the heart of the village.
The design of this hall was a community effort with consistent input from the Parish Council, the Working Group members and the village residents. The new hall is traditional vernacular in terms of its form, layout and design, with a refined palette of materials. The mono-pitch elements of the building have been treated with modern materials such as zinc and buff brick to contrast with the prevalent traditional Hamstone.
The new building includes flexible multi-user spaces which can be used independently or as a whole, offering the villagers the opportunity of running limited post office facilities, community clubs, coffee mornings, exhibitions and much more – making the village hall the heart of the community.
The new building also addresses the needs and access requirements of both elderly and disabled members of the local community to foster a truly inclusive environment.
