Cricket Pavilion | Sports facility
The design approach is to create a simple yet significant addition to the huge expanse of the cricket ground. The building has a linear form oriented East-West with the roof leaning towards the South and the West to minimise internal heat gain and ensure a pleasant quality of light. Two large dressing room areas are separated by a double-height common area, a staircase leading up to the conference room, and a lavish cabin for the owners. A diagonal wall at the entrance on the South breaks the otherwise orthogonal plan while opening up the foyer for players and visitors. Viewing decks on both floors face the north to avoid direct sunlight into the eyes during the viewing experience.
