Cricklewood Library

Cricklewood Library in the London Borough of Brent closed in October 2011. A ten month on-line Friends of Cricklewood Library(FOCL) campaign to save the Library, supported unanimously by residents in Cricklewood received over a thousand visits every week. Inevitably, the Friends lost their battle and the old Library was demolished in 2013. In 2015 work commenced on site to replace the library with a new housing development. 

HUB have the great privilege of being invited to work with the FOCL to assist with the delivery of the library fit out. Our sketches show the shared vision of FOCL with strong ideas emerging for materiality and up-cycling in response to FOCL’s eco-friendly brief.
