Recreation Center + Sports Facility in Falmouth, UK by The Galante Architecture Studio

This project is an award-winning youth recreation center, and sports facility in the Town of Falmouth. The site is a long, sloping slice of land between an existing gymnasium, and the playing fields. We designed the new building to re-establish the privileged viewing position that the original building enjoyed. Generous amounts of glass are set into a wall clad with concrete panels. The inside gathering space allows spectators to watch as teams trot to the fields, play their game, and return in victory (or defeat).

The building incorporates a café, game room, computer classroom, lounge, fitness center, along with locker facilities, shower facilities, coaching and staff offices. Responding to the client’s desire to move all municipal buildings towards renewable energy sources, the building is equipped with passive solar hot water and photovoltaic electrical systems. When not in use, these systems sell electricity back to the utility company, creating a cost savings for the municipality. When in use, the students can monitor cost efficiencies from the classroom computers and study the power of the sun in their everyday life.
