ash manor sports centre

Client: Guildford Spectrum

The provision of a new Health and Fitness Suite at Ash Manor School was a significant addition to the existing dual-use sports centre. The project was conceived by the Spectrum Centre, Guildford, for whom this is a satellite centre.

The new extension includes an entrance foyer and reception, changing accommodation and the new fitness suite.

The new centre incorporates the following facilities:

  • health and fitness gym
  • four-court sports hall
  • foyer and reception
  • changing accommodation
  • administration.

The new building utilises the excellent views across the surrounding countryside and brings high daylight levels into the building. Its dynamic, curving form enhances the existing school building and provides a visual announcement to building users and visitors alike.

The good levels of natural light controlled with external louvres to screen the high summer sun, but allow in the low winter sun, together with the high-levels of insulation, have contributed to the sustainability of the facility.

Materials, colours and lighting are used confidently, to emphasise the architectural form and create an energetic, vibrant atmosphere conducive to fitness.

The scheme was opened by UK top sprinter and Olympic challenger, Darren Campbell.
