Iffley Road 4

Iffley Road Sports Centre

University of Oxford

The first phase of the client’s master plan for this project was a refurbishment of the historic Iffley Road sports hall site.

As a result of our longstanding relationship with the university, they us to deliver new, modern facilities for use by the students and wider community. The first phase of the project included a new, multi-purpose fitness studio space, sports hall and changing spaces, as well as the refurbishment of a café, reception area and swimming pool. 

One of the unique elements of this project was the innovative glass floor installation that now enables seven sports to be played in a single four-court 699 sq m space. This is achieved by a complex design of LED bulbs that help users select which court they wish to play on, such as basketball, badminton or netball. As a result of this design, this sports centre is now accredited with Sports England as a national level training space for badminton and basketball.
