The new high quality building serves both students and staff and is also open to the local community.

The development includes:

  • an 800sq m multi-activity sports hall
  • two squash courts
  • cardiovascular practice room
  • dance / table tennis / martial arts practice room
  • indoor and outdoor changing facilities
  • staff and first-aid facilities
  • reception and viewing areas

The form of the building is simple and legible, with differing accommodation elements expressed by their requirements in terms of volume, light, privacy etc. under a simple curving roof.

An inviting double height glazed entrance and reception area is highly visible to all arriving by foot or car.

A sustainable drainage system assists the wildlife habitat and provides a landscape feature. It also gives the opportunity to harvest rainwater for WC use.
