Bignall End Cricket Club
New-build sports facility
Bignall End, Newcastle-under-lyme
Bignall End Cricket Club is located within the Greenbelt area of North Staffordshire and was established in 1875. We were appointed by the client to design a new Sports England compliant changing facility.
The design requires the demolition of two dilapidated brick built sheds in order to make way for the new facility which is designed to cater for the needs of two teams consisting of up to 14 members each.
Key features of the building include a cantilevered canopy to the principal elevation with a living grass roof, to blend the new building into the surrounding landscape. In contrast to the existing buildings on the site, the design is simple and contemporary in appearance as briefed by the current cricket committee: 'to commission a building for today'. We hope this will add to the long history of the club.
