前菲爾頓機場機庫將成為社區中心

一座曾經用來存放不列顛之戰飛機的建築將被改造成一個新的社區中心。

16U機庫是布里斯托爾前菲爾頓機場的幾個場地之一,作為巨大的布拉巴宗住房開發項目的一部分被重新開發。

這裡曾經是 "噴火 "和 "豪客颶風 "的所在地,它將包含一個圖書館、咖啡館、健身房和出租房。

布里斯托爾期待已久的競技場也是重建機場計劃的一部分,該機場曾是協和飛機的所在地。

該機庫於1915年首次開放,當時由皇家飛行隊使用。在第二次世界大戰中,它是 "噴火 "和 "霍克颶風 "飛機的所在地,這些飛機在不列顛戰役中對遏制德國發揮了關鍵作用。

新建築將保留這個二級機庫的許多原始特徵,包括其屋頂桁架和紅色磚塊。

楊忠禮發展公司說,該建築的底層將包含一個開放式的咖啡館、圖書館、學習艙和私人活動室。

YTL發展公司的規劃和發展總監Sebastian Loyn說。"16U號機庫的修復將使這一歷史性建築回歸其作為社區生活中心的應有地位"。

他說,新設施將成為居住在該地區規劃的數千個新住宅的人們的 "焦點"。

16U機庫的工作將於2023年開始,2024年向公眾開放。


A building once used to house Battle of Britain aircraft is to be converted into a new community hub.

Hangar 16U is one of several sites on Bristol's former Filton Airfield being redeveloped as part of the huge Brabazon housing development.

Once the home of Spitfires and Hawker Hurricanes, it will contain a library, cafe, gym and rooms to hire.

Bristol's long-awaited arena is also part of plans to redevelop the airfield, once home to Concorde.

The hangar was first opened in 1915 when it was used by the Royal Flying Corps. In the Second World War it was the home of both Spitfires and Hawker Hurricane aircraft which played a pivotal role in keeping Germany at bay in the Battle of Britain.

The new building will retain many of the original features of the Grade II-listed hangar, including its roof trusses and red brickwork.

YTL Developments said the ground floor of the building will contain an open-plan cafe, library, study pods and rooms for private events.

Sebastian Loyn, planning and development director at YTL Developments said: "The restoration of Hangar 16U will see this historic structure return to its rightful place as the centre of community life."

He said the new facility would be a "focal point" for people living in the thousands of new homes planned for the area.

Work on Hangar 16U is due to start in 2023, with it opening to the public in 2024.
