King’s College Wimbledon features in the Architects’ Journal

The recently completed £21 million sports complex at Kings College in Wimbledon, has featured in the Architects’ Journal this month

 

The sports complex marks the completion of a 10-year infrastructure masterplan for the school.

 

Our vision for the sports complex was to create a new building that had strong visual connections between indoors and outdoors to encourage physical activity among students, while seamlessly connecting the old facilities.

 

Anna Maria Clarke, Bursar at King’s College Wimbledon, had this to say about the overall project:

 

“We have invested more than £50 million over 10 years to enhance our teaching and learning facilities and the new sports complex is the final piece in the jigsaw. Sport is a very important part of King’s offering. The school has grown exponentially over the years and with over 1,400 students our existing facilities needed to be refreshed and extended."

 

"David Morley Architects were excellent partners on this project and overcame the challenge of integrating the new centre with the old building. The result is a sports complex that is intuitive, easy to navigate and which has been extremely well received by both students and the public.”
