The Louie Memorial Pavilion has become over the last five years a lively community hub hosting many activities. Regardless of its poor physical conditions it seems that there has been an increase in local initiatives for activities that take place under its roof. Strong community spirit rather than the building performance, is the driving force. The aim of the ‘live project’ was to propose a series of functioning yet inspiring designs to accommodate the current activities and future potential whilst conveying the community ethos; it was also to provide leverage for a renovation campaign for the pavilion. The students’ proposals were presented to the public at an exhibition on-site and was reported by the local press. The captivating images were instrumental for the trustees to approach the parish council. It now supports the campaign and has initiated a fundraising process.
