Mulroy Architects completes £400k rowing centre

  • 1 Comment

Mulroy Architects has completed this rowing training facility at an independent school in Oxfordshire


The new £400,000 single-storey building provides year-round training facilities for Radley College’s rowing teams and is the latest in a series of schemes at the school by the London-based practice formerly known as Andrew Mulroy Architects.

The project includes a rowing tank that mimics the conditions on the river and allows training to take place at any time of the year. 

Teams of up to eight sit in a static row boat in the tank and resistance is provided by water flowing in a double return loop around and under the boat.

The 275m2 steel building has been clad in timber and Kingspan panels which were left over from a previous project at the college.

The scheme is the first phase of a larger project which will also include a circuit training room, space for 20 rowing machines, a viewing gallery for adjacent tennis courts, and new changing facilities.
