Concept for the extension of a prestigious listed sports club.
This project to extend a high-end sports club to incorporate a new swimming pool, spa, restaurant and bar necessitated a response that accounted for the historical prestige of the location as well as a listed wall built by Sir Edward Lutyens. Taking the existing wall as the departure point for our design, an innovative brick façade negotiates the contours of the programme, dissolving into a lighter entity that simultaneously allows natural light to penetrate. Our solution blended the traditions of the historic sports club with a contemporary reinterpretation of a listed feature.
