Copper Box ArenaThe 7,000-capacity Copper Box, home to the Handball Arena during the 2012 Olympics, has been transformed into a new venue for a wide range of indoor sports as well as cultural and business events. Located in the west of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park close to Hackney Wick station, it was one of the first legacy venues to re-open. Despite its rather bland and boxy-looking exterior, the Copper Box was one of the Olympic Park's greenest initiatives. The four outer walls of the square building are covered in largely recycled copper cladding which will change colour as it ages; 88 natural light pipes in the room will illuminate the interior, lessening the need for artificial light; rainwater pipes will also recycle water. A glazed 'concourse' level encircles the building and will allow passers-by to view the sporting events taking place inside as well as allow additional light onto the interior, which will be fitted with multi-coloured retractable seating giving the place a vibrant feel, while in the centre of the building, a state-of-the-art sprung wood floor covers the competition area. After the games, the £44m Handball Arena will be transformed into a flexible, multi-use sports centre for community use catering for a range of sports including basketball, handball, badminton, boxing, martial arts, netball, table tennis, wheelchair rugby and volleyball. There is also be a health and fitness club with changing facilities and a cafe.
