Holy Trinity Clapham, London – Design Progress

King’s College School Pavilion
A new sports pavilion for King’s College School at Raynes Park has been submitted for planning. The building’s location, identified by the head groundsman, involves no loss of playable pitches, as well as a grandstand view of the playing fields. MBA worked with this idea to design a wedge-shaped building, carefully adapted to the path of the sun. The roof is a solar farm of photovoltaic panels generating 20% of the building’s energy requirements, fed back to the grid when the pavilion is not in use.Read less.
