The new Eco-Hub is the centrepiece of the regeneration and transformation of the historic Lordship Recreation Ground, and has been designed to exemplary sustainable standards. Commissioned by Haringey Council and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Parks for People programme, Big Lottery and the Greater London Authority. It will provide teaching space for environmental education, a multi-purpose community space for community organisations including the Lordship Rec mother and toddler group, a public cafe near the playground and the lake, with kitchen and public WCs, and a boot room for Park volunteers. From the outset, detailed consultation with Friends of Lordship Rec, local user groups, environmental education teachers and officers at LB Haringey, helped develop a pragmatic building brief and set out the core aims of community involvement and a truly sustainable building design for the Eco-Hub. Local people joined the construction team to build the strawbale walls.
