The new sports centre for Uppingham School includes a 25 metre pool, a fitness studio, squash courts and gymnasium. The building has a dual role in both serving the school and the community. The potential long term income stream meant the client could allow the design to be more ambitious.
ORMS developed a simple clear strategy for the site, entailing a raised grass escarpment overlooking the rugby pitches. The building was well planned, well considered and well executed.
