Urban Adventure: The Cube

Realising that in an urban environment space can be at a premium we developed ‘The Cube’. Through clever design this maximises the volume given over to revenue generating adventure activities whilst minimising the land take and build cost.

The Cube Concept Night

The VX-Cube is a breath-taking new concept project, designed for Venture Xtreme by architects Faulkner Browns. The iconic VX-Cube 60m high, taller than a 15 storey building! The unique visionary structure will dominate vistas, while acting as lighthouse to a world of active sport, leisure and entertainment.

A number of very exciting locations are being considered for the VX-Cube, some of which are moving quickly. Designed to fit comfortably on a 2 hectare site including parking, there are many opportunities for siting the VX-Cube in the UK. And the concept is scalable with smaller versions ideal for high value urban environments.

The VX-Cube can be lit from the inside or out, causing it to glow vibrantly and stand out in the landscape.  The skin can be used as a backdrop for amazing light shows, advertising or for picture projections.

“Unquestionably one of the most exciting projects to come to the UK in recent years”
