Cricket pavilion for St Edwardâ€™s School built as a landmark at the heart of the campus
Formed by two simple and rectilinear elements, a wooden plinth and a whitewashed roof, the pavilion is a viewing platform sheltered from the elements by cantilevered overhangs.
Clad in timber with large glazed areas, it stands as a distinctive landmark in the recreation grounds, its horizontality being one of its main features.
The building provides the usual facilities for sporting events such as changing rooms for opposing sides, a space designed for the convivial match tea and a room where sporting memorabilia can be exhibited, all organised within a rectangular plan.
This geometrical configuration allows for a simple arrangement of the spaces, which are then enclosed so as to express its functionality.
