REDS Award, Best Public Sport & Leisure Centre

Whitechapel West Sports Centre, London | Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects

Whitechapel, in the heart of London's East End, contains many people who, because of ethnic, economic and cultural factors, are often excluded from participating in sports. PTE's brief was to design high quality sports facilities in a friendly and welcoming building. In particular it was to appeal to members of the Asian community, especially women, as well as be accessible to people with disabilities. Their special needs have been discreetly and efficiently accommodated.
