Project: The David Lloyd Lymington Sports Village by Tristan Vigor-Salkeld

To contribute to Lymington’s heritage, the core conceptual inspiration for the sports village was developed from the shape of a vessel found in one of the town’s marinas. From using this core inspiration, a design that sits comfortably with the surrounding landscape but still holding the town’s roots was born.

Internal spaces used nautical concepts also, with the large atrium running throughout the entire complex – inspired by a cruise vessel. It provides all features of the complex with a central hub but with internal green spaces to create a strong bond between internal and external spaces.

The key part of the construction of the build is the use of natural style tree columns based in the central atrium. These columns alongside the large amount of greenery in this space ensures users feel comfortable and relaxed. The spaces have a sense of sport externally but most importantly create an atmosphere that reduces stress, with research in how the use of green spaces improves mental health, a factor that is a priority in a health and wellbeing facility.
