Cycling Club Hackney HQ Lea Rowing Club, Springfield Park, Clapton


This project is for the Cycling Club Hackney’s new HQ and clubhouse.

2017 was Cycling Club Hackney’s 10th year anniversary. The club is dedicated to promoting cycling and cycle sport for all levels and ages, and has an active youth section catering for young people between the ages 8 and 18, as well as senior and women’s representation. CCH is affiliated to British Cycling and is an Accredited Club Mark Go-Ride club.

The site is to the rear of the Lea Valley Rowing club behind the Tyrell’s Boat House. It fronts onto a rear service and carpark area with access from Spring Hill and views over the Springhill Sports Ground.

The new clubhouse is designed to maximise the usable space, lightweight, easy to construct and sustainable. An elegant lightweight timber frame is quick to erect and minimises the impact and work in the ground saving time and costs. Horizontal strip boards are used for the cladding and profiled fibre cement sheeting for the roof. Generous roof windows and front glazing ensure good levels of daylight and ventilation. Sustainable sheeps wool insulation provides good levels of thermal and acoustic insulation and moisture control.
