New Sports Hub + Pre-school, Cornwall

We have recently been lucky enough to be involved with an exciting new sports hub for a village within the South West.  The new facilities will include a multi-purpose sports hall, pre-school, changing room facilities for outdoor and indoor activities, and a community room for local meetings such as the WI, Parish Council meetings etc.  There will also be a new kitchen so that the village school can use the hall at lunch times.  Due to the village location and the fact that it is within a conservation area the design has had to be ‘clever’ because the internal requirements require quite a high building yet the impact to its environment needs to be carefully considered and be sensitive to its context.
