FaulknerBrowns unveils competition-winning sports centre design

  • Comment

FaulknerBrowns has revealed images of its competition-winning scheme for a community sports centre and indoor cycle track in Edmonton, provincial capital of Alberta, Canada

Teaming up with Canadian architects Hughes Condon Marler and Edmonton-based Dub Architects, FaulknerBrowns bagged the job in summer 2013, beating Hopkins and the Toronto office of Maclennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects.

The scheme includes a 250m Olympic-standard indoor cycle track, a gymnasium, a four-lane indoor running track, community use studios and play space.

The cycle track has been raised a storey above ground level to provide connectivity between community facilities, entrance and surrounding parkland.

The project will include a link to a nearby Peter Hemingway-designed swimming pool.

Once completed, the community sports facility will become the second major indoor cycle track in Canada. Another, which is set to be used for the 2015 Pan Am Games, is under construction in Toronto.
