Architect designed Cycle Hub at Westgate Oxford

A Cycle Hub provides safe storage for 186 bikes at the new, retail-led, development at Westgate Oxford. For a nominal annual registration fee, members can park their bicycles with the additional security of 24-hour CCTV.

The cycle shelter features Italia-80V steel louvred panels. On the North and South elevations the top edge of the panels were raked from 2.95m to 3.35m to follow the 3° slope of the roof, designed for rainwater management.

The panels were hot-dip galvanized and finished with a polyester powder coating (RAL7037) to contrast with the support steelwork.
