The brief of this project is to find a new purpose for Thomson Community Centre, based on the understanding of the historical significance of the site. It is located opposite the former Longhouse, an iconic meeting point for cyclists, which has since been demolished.
MadAboutBikes proposes the design of a bicycle cafe/ rental service, as a new hotspot that aims to help Thomson rediscover its identity as a recreational hub, providing opportunities for social interaction over the common interest of cycling. The key feature of this project is the "cycle-through", which aims to integrate the outdoor indoors.
