The new centre, comprising new-build and remodelled existing buildings, consolidates the school’s sports facilities. A quiet perimeter facade, single access route and sculptured green roof sensitively respond to neighbouring listed properties. A new double-sided lift and colonnaded lobby link the new building to existing squash courts, forming a single holistic complex. Three linked pavilions contain a six-court sports hall, 25m swimming pool, reception, changing rooms, viewing galleries, gym and an exercise studio. The arrangement frames the Lodge Garden, creating a hierarchy of outdoor spaces and enriching the school grounds.
