Established Architectural practice Hopkins Architects are based in North London, and completed this total refurbishment of the original venue for the 1948 Olympic cycling events in Herne Hill, South London. The design of the pavilion features a timber structure above, utilising 6 of the original decorative cast iron columns from the 1890’s structure to hold it up. The scheme provides a new kitchen and servery, changing rooms, toilets, and a large club room that has views of the track beyond. The stepped terrace provides numerous seating opportunities for race spectators. The project also provides a fabric-roofed space behind which provides all-year weather protection.
