The elevations were designed to advertise the internal functions of the building. The first floor is conceived as a lightweight metal and glass pod, clearly visible from the main road. Similarly the dance studio looks out at the playing field from its elevated position.
The façade of bronze-toned rain-screen cladding provides the impression of a natural and robust material next to the green landscape of the playing fields. Proposed tree planting was implemented to help improve the sustainability of the site and help define different routes to the centre. The building itself scored a BREEAM rating of ‘very good’.
