Type3 Studio’s Hampshire arts hub set to shine

Type3 Studio's new arts centre, seen from Bordon Town Square

Former military building to become cultural focus for expanding ex-garrison town

Type3 Studio has won planning permission for proposals to create a new arts centre in the former Hampshire garrison town of Bordon.

Once in line to be one of New Labour’s “Eco Towns”, Bordon and its linked village Whitehill are now dubbed a “green town” and earmarked for a significant expansion over the next decade, with the delivery of thousands of new homes, jobs and community facilities on 100 hectares of former Ministry of Defence land.

Type3’s new arts venue will provide a cultural focal point for the growing community, and will be built out from a neo-Georgian mess hall in Bordon – the façade, portico and “key details” of which will be retained.
