Marstons Hub is a new facility for vulnerable young adults in Ludlow. The scheme offers supported residential accommodation and pathways into training and apprenticeships. It includes 11 new build homes, 13 refurbished homes, 10,000ft2 commercial workspace and a 1,000ft2 community café. The design principle was to develop a language that unifies the historic brick fabric with the newer elements of pre-patinated copper shingles reminiscent of the local agricultural vernacular, a black timber base and separating glass section.
