Godolphin and Latymer School Sports Centre
Godolphin and Latymer School, an independent school for girls, was established in Hammersmith, London, in 1861.
The new Sports and Fitness facility occupies the site of the former sports hall, comprising a four-court sports hall, fitness and dance studios, a classroom, change rooms and storage. The school expressed an ambition for the new building to be naturally lit and as naturally ventilated as possible. Planning considerations also dictated a 20% renewable energy target. Our design included the air-source heat pump, photovoltaic cells, low energy controls and high performance building fabric meet these ambitions.
Some mechanical ventilation assistance accounts for seasonal weather extremes, allowing for heat recovery and supplementing underfloor heating in winter.
