Storey’s Field Centre & Eddington Nursery

This 100-place nursery is arranged around three sides of a landscaped courtyard. On the fourth side is the civic scaled community centre which includes a 180-seat main hall. Influenced by the dining halls and chapels of Cambridge colleges, the main hall uses an exposed, articulated timber structure. The slender spruce-glulam portal frames spring from the oak panelled base and pass in front of a backdrop of ash veneered panelling, with timber tones gradually lightening with the height of the space.
