PLACES LEISURE EASTLEIGH


  • THE DESIGN OF THE NEW SUSTAINABLE LEISURE CENTRE UNDERPINS EASTLEIGH BOROUGH COUNCIL'S COMMITMENT TO PROMOTING A HEALTHY BOROUGH AND OFFERS THE PEOPLE OF EASTLEIGH A NEW HEALTH AND FITNESS VENUE WITH IMPROVED FACILITIES, BENEFITTING THE WHOLE COMMUNITY.

    THE 9,400 M2 BREEAM EXCELLENT BUILDING IS ONE OF THE LARGEST IN THE REGION AND WAS DESIGNED AND CONSTRUCTED IN UNDER THREE YEARS.

  • The new facilities include a gym, fitness studios, 25m eight lane swimming pool, 15 badminton courts, tennis courts, squash courts and all-weather pitches, as well as a café and soft play area.

    The new building makes the most of its parkland surroundings through highly glazed double height spaces. AHR put the importance of natural daylight as a key priority in creating healthy and appealing spaces. Several design options were analysed to break away from the conventional leisure centre.

    Careful orientation of glazing to create north light within the swimming pool and sports hall combined with stretching the building 'spine' has achieved exceptional levels of daylight and parkland views throughout the occupied spaces.

    Despite the larger size, due to careful design the centre maintains a similar footprint to the existing leisure building, with no loss of green space, demonstrating its high environmental standards.
