Feilden + Mawson wins Culford School cricket pavilion
Firm sees off Haysom Ward Miller and Freeland Rees Roberts to design £400,000 replacement pavilion for private school near Bury St Edmunds
Feilden + Mawson has won an invited competition to design a new cricket pavilion at Culford School near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
The practice beat Cambridge-based practices Haysom Ward Miller and Freeland Rees Roberts to land the £400,000 project to replace an existing thatched pavilion.
The scheme will sit in the grounds of the Grade II*-listed Culford Park estate – a former country house which was taken over by the independent school in 1935.
The victorious design was drawn up by Feilden + Mawson partners Philip Bodie and Charles Curry-Hyde. Curry-Hyde said: ‘The new pavilion is elegant, sophisticated, discrete and in harmony with the symmetrical nature of the game of cricket itself.
‘Central to [our] concept was the need for a clear view through the building to the parkland beyond – similar to the framing of the parkland through the Grade I-listed iron bridge nearby.’
