The Venue, De Montfort University
We have refurbished the old sports facility to create a modern, multi-function event space. The main hall area divides into three separate zones via sliding and folding partitions allowing multiple activities to be held at one time. Circulation routes flanking the main hall area provide access to the sub-divided areas independently and to associated areas of storage and self-contained WC clusters.
A new lift also provides access to the first floor area. Once a large open plan area, it is now subdivided into smaller conference facilities with associated tea preparation and break out areas.
Additional glazing has been introduced where internal spaces permit, giving glimpses of activities within the building providing a visual appeal on most key approaches to the building.
The building has been re-clad in timber and render and re-roofed to provide an attractive and more thermally efficient envelope. A new high-level canopy, supported on splayed columns, articulates the welcoming entrance.
