Kingston Grammar School

Thames Ditton, Surrey KT7

Proposals for a new four-court sports hall and separate sports pavilion set within a greenfield site adjacent to the Thames.

CGL developed designs for two separate buildings to provide new sports facilities for Kingston Grammar School. Set within a Greenfield site next to the Thames, the proposed site fell within a protected view from Hampton Court Palace, a protected ancient monument.  Sensitive siting to take advantage of existing screening and the use of green roofs were employed to minimise any visual impact.

The sports hall had to accommodate a wide range of sports including badminton, hockey, football and basketball as well as viewing facilities. The pavilion was designed to accommodate changing facilities for hockey and cricket, a physiotherapy room, staff areas, teaching rooms as well as viewing areas with associated bar. Both buildings had to be designed to maximise external revenue streams.
