28 August 2017 – Exemplary new Sports Building broken ground
We are delighted to report that following Planning Permission being granted at the beginning of the month, work has begun on site for Southampton Solent University’s exciting new Sports Building. UBU Design, working closely with Architecture PLB, have developed a strong design for the apron of public space that will surround the new facility. The landscape draws from, and relates to the building context, with the paving design keying into the articulation of the brick work on the building elevations. This strong geometry allows for a rhythm of elements to be stitched into the overall design, with seating, cycle stands and other street furniture slotting into the composition.
