Eton College’s Willowbrook Outdoor Sports Centre offers advanced facilities for the school’s students and the local community including two state-of-the-art, floodlit all-weather pitches and clay and acrylic tennis courts. With the centre’s existing pavilion reaching the end of its useable life, a decision was made to replace this with an attractive new facility.
The new single-storey building has been designed by Lewandowski Architects and provides a range of facilities including changing rooms, toilets and a kitchen along with a roof-top viewing platform. Feltham Construction managed work on the project which included the demolition of the building’s outdated predecessor. Wood was a key part of the material palette with charred timber fitted for the outer cladding and birch-ply boards fitted internally. This approach extended to the structure, with Bentley SIP Systems using Kingspan TEK Building System for the walls of the structural wall.
