The original plan was to refurbish the two existing structures, however upon initial inspection, our team recognised that that a rebuild of the second building was necessary to deliver a high quality design that removed potential risks and hazards of the existing structure.
Working together JN and Smith & Tzannes, along with Hibernian builders, we developed a design that incorporated a combination of concrete and timber roofing, with an attractive brass finish to the façade, as well as the addition of a green roof. The design also incorporated refreshed bathrooms and changing-room facilities, undercover shelter, clubhouse storage and a canteen. The result was a striking design that linked both the old and new structures with design elements that will prolong the lifespan of this rejuvenated facility.
