Saunders Boston Architects were appointed by South Norfolk Council as lead consultant for this community focused architectural project. We were appointed following a competitive tender and interview process to help develop the facilities brief in tandem with the business case. The concept had been developed around a community aspiration combined with a strong ambition to make the centre more economically viable whilst delivering visitors a first class experience.

The facility had been developed in an adhoc manor with a 1980’s Sports Hall, 1990’s Swimming Pool and a serise of internal alteration in between. The key challenge we encountered was how to bring all these elements together along with a new build fitness suite extention which becomes the focus of the improved facility. The main entrance / café becomes a ‘hub’ allowing access to the key facilities from a central location.
 
The contemporary new additions are designed to provide a dynamic face to the centre acting as a ‘shop window’ for the members fitness suite and cafe complimenting the health suite and refurbished sports hall, swimming pool and studios.

“Saunders Boston’s design has rejuvenated our existing facilities and brought them together with our new fitness suite, health suite and hub which dramatically improve our customer’s experience”.
