The Hive, London

Regional Finalist, Civic Trust Awards 2017

We have completed a new youth centre, The Hive, in Swiss Cottage for the London Borough of Camden to be a safe and welcoming place for young people aged 16 to 24, who are caught in the gap between children’s and adults’ services.

The Hive is a place for young people to relax, study, meet new people and to get information about local services. There is a cinema, a café and a garden, spaces for e-learning and personal study, and a social enterprise centre where young people can get experience to help build their CVs.

“We were all very impressed with how Ash Sakula prompted genuine and meaningful conversations with the young people throughout the Co-design. You grabbed everyone’s interest and made them feel comfortable discussing their thoughts and opinions openly.”
