Sports Campus Facilities

Two connected sports halls which can easily be opened up for functions and performances and a permanent exam hall with associated ancillary spaces.

The brief was to significantly extend the sports facilities at a top independent school in Shropshire, replacing a temporary hall and providing additional facilities. The aim was to design a permanent replacement second hall which can connect to the existing hall by dividing the two with a retractable partition. The two halls together would then be able to become an auditorium and have bleacher seating for 900 people, making a flexible multi-purpose space for sports, functions and performances.

Additional breakout spaces, changing rooms, plant rooms, and storage were also required. In addition, we were requested to investigate the option of having a third element, a separate permanent exam hall. This would then remove the need for staff to set out exam tables for up to 600 students on a weekly basis.
