Kendal Snowsports Club
Our new viewing gallery for Kendal Snowsports Club was opened at the end of March 2014 by club member Emma Lonsdale who was a GB Team member at the Socchi Winter Olympics 2014.
The viewing gallery built in robust sections of European Larch provides a covered viewing area overlooking the training slope. A number of bold projecting balconies provide space for small groups to gather and for wheelchair viewing. These balconies also allow for the introduction of daylight and modelling of the west facing facade.
A particular challenge was the continuously rising levels at the base of the training slope which required careful consideration at design stage and equal care during construction which took place wholly on site from a temporary joiner's workshop constructed on site.
