Sessay Cricket Club & Village Hall

 

Competition, Yorkshire

 

 

Celebrating Sessay’s rural beauty was the primary inspiration for the design of the new Village Hall and Cricket Club House. Embracing multi-view points and accessibility, the single story building forms six concave bays - subtly separating functions in and around it, forming elegant backdrops for each. The brick corners emphasise transition from one bay to the next, becoming places in their own right: to meet, pause or explore. A continuous veranda wraps around the building, sheltered by a far-reaching overhang. Full height windows trace this movement allowing for expansive views and sun-light from a multitude of sides.

 

The choice of the brick refers to Sessay’s vernacular architecture. It is suggested that simple and readily available materials be used to construct the building and the number of construction details is kept to the minimum, using same size elements such as doors and windows throughout.
