Community & Leisure


The brief:

To design a contemporary extension and alterations to the existing clubhouse, within a limited budget. Providing additional W/C facilities, seating, a bar, kitchen, storage and an enhanced viewing area, with scope for outdoor events.

Our approach:

Having designed a scheme previously for Thongsbridge Cricket Club, which was not pursued as funding was not secured, we’ve been working with the club to help develop an alternative, more cost-effective scheme. Emphasis has been placed on the construction methods, selection of materials and quality of space from an early stage. The scheme aims to maximise views over the cricket pitch, whilst providing an accessible building and a flexible outdoor seating area for events and games.

The result:

We have recently obtained planning permission for this scheme and are currently working up the detailed drawings for building regulations and construction. We’re really looking forward to seeing this one built and will post up the results here!
