Northfield provides a new leisure facility incorporating two new pools, an entrance community vending / viewing area, 80-person fitness suite, a 40-person dance studio and associated changing and administration spaces.
The 2 storey element of the building is positioned along its main frontage with Bristol Road South and the pedestrian link to the bus stop. This provides an active frontage presence to the entrance and both principle elevations. The building steps down to the rear following the sloping nature of the site. The Plant accommodation to the rear is partially subterranean and this “cut in” creates an overall height reduction and footprint and allows the built form to step naturally with the site.
