Brent Civic Centre – Wembley

Located on a prominent site next to two well-known civic icons, Wembley Stadium and Wembley Arena, the new Civic Centre streamlines all aspects of the Council’s activities and is a new hub and heart for the community where residents can meet, shop and eat. The building’s spaces are arranged around a soaring, naturally-lit foyer and atrium which houses a large public amphitheatre and staircase that will host a programme of high-quality arts and cultural experiences that will enhance the building. A circular Drum clad in timber fins features prominently in this space and houses a multi-purpose community hall, library, one-stop shop and civic chamber. Behind this, glazed office wings are open-plan and flexible to provide a future-proofed solution to the diverse community’s administrative needs. The building also includes space for retail outlets and a landscaped garden to help it to connect further with the surrounding Wembley Regeneration Area.
