This project is a Sports Therapy Centre that focuses on improving the health of people both physically and mentally in Hackney Wick, an area that has high heath rates such as obesity and anxiety, as well as those from the surrounding areas. The purpose of merg- ing these two functions is to provide the community with one building that can accom- modate for both, the improvement of physical and mental health, through Sport and Therapy. This is a direct response to the existing health issues within the area as with this building, the aim is to lower these health issues and design a space that will improve and benefit people’s lives. The design consists of sports facilities such as a multipurpose hall, running track, skate bowl, football pitch and gym and therapy facilities such as therapy rooms, group therapy rooms and an interior landscape walkway.
