53 The Boulevard Feasibility, Hull

Before the site was taken for BSF, we worked with Hull FC & Hull PCT on the conversion of the Boulevard West Stand into a Rugby Centre of Excellence and Community Health Centre.

Our original site visit was not inspiring. The stand, built in the 1980s, was in a poor state of repair and an almost useless shape for conversion into surgeries, offices and conferencing facilities. The building was 100m long by 4m wide – almost like being on a train. The main concept was to enter at the centre point, thus halving any corridors; followed by a series of spaces and journeys creating an exciting place to visit for everyone.

We honestly believe that if we can create an exciting, practical and sustainable building from an old rugby stand - we can do anything!
