Queenwood Sports Centre
A Cutting Edge Sports Centre for fostering Talent within Sport
The contemporary expression of the building exemplifies how education has moved on from the institutional and conservative styles of the 1960’s and looks forward with confidence. The new Queenwood sports centre includes an indoor 25m pool, training pool, covered basketball court, science labs and learning spaces.
The pool hall is enclosed by inclined 8 metre high glazed walls, with 25m long box girders spaning the hall, held aloft by inclined T columns. The pool hall becomes an arena surrounded on all sides with corridors that afford gallery views of the pools.
