PROJECT DESCRIPTION

An engineered timber pavilion built in 1891 for cycling events at the 1948 Olympics, Herne Hill Velodrome in south London had fallen into disrepair. The new timber structure, similar in scale to its predecessor, houses changing rooms, general amenities, coaches’ office, and a generously sized club room overlooking the entire site at first floor. Behind the pavilion a tensile fabric canopy between the bike storage units creates a versatile year-round covered space for outdoor activities.
