For this design commission Suzanne was asked to design security screens for a large leisure pavilion in Kingsmere. This new building is at the heart of a busy sports complex that offers a variety of sports facilities for all ages. The pavilion contains changing rooms, multi-functional community rooms and a café bar.
For her first design, she worked on capturing movement in sport and the essence of speed. This formed the Ball Games design used for different doors and windows. A key challenge was to make this design work for the many different sizes. The Exercise Class, the second design, acts as a shelter over the refreshment kiosk, and as a security screen when it is closed. The final design, for an entrance to the building, is in two halves and illustrates many images of sports-equipment and related subject matter.
