Exmouth Leisure Centre Refurbishment
SPACE & PLACE’s design ideas for the refurbishment of Exmouth leisure centre included:
- Making the centre easier for visitors to navigate. This has been achieved as a result of the multiple existing staircases being replaced by a large single access stairway and lift linking all areas together seamlessly. The updated stairway is accessed directly from the newly created large open plan foyer, that also houses a new climbing wall.
- Reducing the number of squash courts and the size of the sports hall to create an open-plan ground floor gym with windows giving views across the estuary
- Designing a mezzanine above the gym to house a new studio, which also benefits from views across the estuary
- Renovation of the existing studios and gym, including demounting of partitions to create larger rooms, so that these areas are now home to a large spinning room, a toning studio and a multi-purpose studio.
