A new three-storey youth centre including a boxing gym with changing rooms and a sauna. The youth centre also includes social lounges, games hall with café, training, meeting and homework rooms, music laboratory, recital suite, health counselling suite and all supporting services.

The development included two large interlinked ‘box forms’ reaching 14 metres high to provide performance space. A central atrium is the main focal point and runs the full height of the building.

Spotlight Youth Centre was constructed close to the development of Langdon Park School and a close working relationship is needed for both projects to be successfully delivered.

The project achieved BREEAM 'Excellent' standard.
