Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has revealed designs for a new sports and science building at Brighton College
The scheme, which was submitted for planning earlier this month, features a linear building containing both science and sports facilities.
The building’s ground floor sports spaces open out onto the surrounding playing field while the science facilities span above these in a ‘skeletal bridge’.
According to the practice, the scheme’s façade has been inspired by the ‘regular rythmn of terraced housing opposite the new building’.
The practice won the job after an invited competition back in 2013.
The new sports and science building is the latest in the co-ed boarding and day school’s £100 million investment programme, which will see a new building completed each year for the next nine years.
Hopkins Architects is working on a new teaching block and a new music school by Eric Parry Architects, which will sit next Tim Ronalds’ Performing Arts Centre, is set to open in 2015.
The campus site also includes a historic quadrangle surrounded by grade II-listed George Gilbert Scott-designed buildings.
