St Mary’s University College, Twickenham, architectural photography

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London. My website is www.simonkennedy.net

St Mary’s University College Twickenham has a beautiful new sports facility designed by architects Rivington Street Studio. A really fantastic day for this one, beautiful Autumnal light all morning, conveniently clouding over in the afternoon so that I could have lunch, and then becoming beautiful in the evening once again in time for a lovely sunset.

The £5.8 million scheme extends and renovate existing sports facilities at St Mary’s College, adding 1950 square meters and refurbishing 2000 square meters of the existing facility. The centre is in part for use as a training facility leading up to the Olympic games this Summer, and includes gym facilities, a large new sports hall and changing rooms, all housed in an exemplary low-energy development. Architectural photography completed over one day. (All images copyright Simon Kennedy.)
