Architectural Grating crowns Britannia Leisure Centre
Britannia Leisure Centre is a new multi-sport community complex in Hackney. A key driver for the client was that the building should have a compact footprint. This was achieved by stacking the facilities and creating a rooftop MUGA .
Lang+Fulton supplied panels of their architectural grating which crown the building, surrounding the area with open-air pitches and providing panoramic views of London. These were made from Terra-34 grating which features an anti-climb aperture. The tall slender panels were designed to continue the architectural theme of the building’s columns and vertical elements and were finished in a graphite grey ppc to compliment the neutral palette of stone, concrete and glass.
In addition a grating screen was supplied to secure the upper levels of the stairway providing natural daylight and through visibility to the entrance atrium and cafe area.
