Combining a range of functions, for Scouts, sports fields and public use, under one big roof creates a multi-functional community and recreational facility with structural efficiency, energy saving features and resilient design. Using steel portal frames with a curved single span deep profile metal roof sheet and a patterned facade of coloured metal cladding, inspired by the local sandstone and tree canopy, a simple, flexible shell is created that can also serve a variety of other community uses day or night.
