Clayton Community Centre
The Clayton Community Centre is the first facility in Surrey to combine arts, recreations, library, and park spaces. The centre is designed as a Passive House certified building to recognize the goals of Surrey's Sustainability Charter, and the community's plans in creating a more sustainable neighbourhood.
Clayton Community Centre in Surrey is a community hub integrating arts and cultural programming, a library, recreation facilities, and outdoor spaces all in one location. The facility features a gymnasium, a weight room & fitness studios, a library, and programming for all ages. A revolutionary leaf-like heavy timber structure, pinwheel units create a two-way wood structure spanning the larger spaces throughout the building. With the interlocking members, a tree canopy was created to envelop all spaces of the building together, gaining structural strength from all the members being interconnected.
