This project makes innovative use of an engineered timber frame providing large clear spans required for a sports hall. With all large components designed to be brought onto site through an unusually constrained access point, the timber structure also informed the choice of internal materials resulting in a warm and inviting facility that is a joy to its users. On an extremely tight urban site, this ‘ship in a bottle’ project also incorporates significant renewable and passive energy conservation measures for an accredited green flag school.
