The Twechar Healthy Living & Enterprise Centre is a community run, publicly funded project, recently completed by jmarchitects. The refurbishment of the existing Twechar Recreation Centre into the Twechar HL&E Centre forms the beginning of a wider range of redevelopment for the town of Twechar. A comprehensive masterplan document for the area details phases of house building and leisure facilities; these will be primarily based around the twin attractions of the Forth & Clyde Canal and the Antonine Wall. The masterplan details the refurbished Twechar HL&E Centre as the spearhead project and symbol of the Council’s and resident’s aspirations.

The design of the refurbished Twechar Healthy Living & Enterprise Centre is based around a core of accommodation which consists of a café, training facilities, crèche and business units. A prominent new entrance marked by a double height glazed element and a folding plane of zinc contrasts against the existing clad sportshall, this dynamic element signifying the beginning of change and redevelopment in the town. The entrance establishes the predominant axis through the building allowing a connection of functions throughout the scheme, which are marked along the route by a series of events.
