Carnegie Pavilion at Leeds by Alsop Sparch

 
February 13th, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal

Carnegie Pavilion is a semi-freestanding ‘dual-use’ pavilion on five floors, comprising a gross internal area (GIA) of 4,000m², and broken down into three sub-zones: exclusive Leeds Met spaces + exclusive YCCC spaces + ‘dual-use’ spaces (comprising 70% of total area). Leeds Met areas are primarily for teaching kitchen, hospitality and staff accommodation, and YCCC areas for player’s facilities and staff accommodation. ‘dual-use’ lecture rooms are used primarily by Leeds Met, during the academic year, and by YCCC, during the cricket season, as corporate hospitality suites. Similarly, ‘dual-use’ meeting rooms are used primarily by Leeds Met, during the academic year, and by YCCC, during the cricket season, as TV and radio commentary boxes.

History
The Yorkshire County Cricket Club has a strong relationship with Leeds Metropolitan University which demonstrates a positive desire to work together for the long-term benefit of the game of cricket. YCCC still owns the land and has granted the rights to build on that land to Leeds Metropolitan University on a long lease – with Yorkshire County Cricket Club then leasing back the space inside the building for use as a cricket pavilion and Media Centre.

Alsop Sparch worked closely together with a team of specialist consultants including: Arup (Structures; Acoustics; Fire; Traffic; Building Services), DTZ (Planning), RLB (Cost Management), White Young Green (BREEAM) and Gardiner & Theobald (Project Manager). The design evolved through numerous iterations in consultation with Leeds Metropolitan University and Yorkshire County Cricket – as well as many other takeholders including Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Cricket Writers Association, Sky, BBC, as well as local community representatives and planning officers.

Background

The shared vision of Leeds Metropolitan University in partnership with Yorkshire County Cricket Club (YCCC) to replace the existing, substandard Wintershed and Media Centre with the new dual-use ‘Carnegie Pavilion’ – providing Leeds Met with a unique new teaching faculty and YCCC with new world-class Media & Hospitality facilities – has been realized in the form of a stunning new landmark in the heart of Headingley.

Although there is a degree of operational overlap, during the academic year, the Carnegie Pavilion will operate mainly as a university teaching faculty and, during the summer holidays, mainly as a cricket pavilion and media centre. At the heart of the project is the concept of a more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable approach to education and sport: one building replacing the need for two, that will be occupied all year round, and be more engaged with the local community.

The Headingley Carnegie Pavilion will accommodate Leeds Metropolitan University’s School of Tourism, Hospitality and Events (THE), where students will benefit from direct exposure to real life sporting events and hospitality. The development will incorporate a full-scale teaching kitchen as well as lecture theatres and faculty offices. Students of Digital Journalism will also be based in the building, and will work with the hi-tech facilities of the new Media Centre. It will be the location for a unique blend of education in a professional setting and a professional sporting base for Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

Together the project will create a high quality, educationally exciting and high profile professional face for sport in Leeds. The Carnegie Pavilion is part of Leeds Metropolitan University wider strategy to become a world-class regional university, with world-wide horizons: to be a university of festivals and partnerships creating a culture of celebration which values pioneering relationships with other world-class regional organizations across education, the arts, sport, business and wider community life. LeedsMetropolitan University promotes rubbing shoulders with, and learning from, champions – which is embodied in the partnership with The Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
