The renovation and extension of the Pavilion was commissioned by
Cambridge City Council (Ken Hay, Head of Community Development), with
5th Studio as the architects (Oliver Smith) and SDC as the builders (Wray
Booth). The changing rooms were provided by
Thurston Group.

The original building has been doubled in size to include a hall, youth room,
kitchen, office, toilets and foyer. A new block of changing rooms has been
added alongside the extended building, linked to the Pavilion by a paved
patio. There are two team rooms and an officials' room, all with good access
at ground level. Both buildings are clad in a mesh framework with decorated
backing panels. The work was completed in July 2009. This page has general
images of the renovation, while the
changing rooms page has images about
the delivery of those rooms.

Two workshops were held in November 2008 to talk about Public Art for the
Pavilion. There were further sessions with local children and adults in March
2009. The ideas from these workshops were used by the artist (Mike Tuck)
to inform the design of the exterior cladding of the building and the interior
decoration.

"5th Studio is an award-winning design practice based in the UK. Our
work spans across the fields of design, architecture, urbanism and
landscape. We work in a studio setting that allows us to collaborate
across these disciplines with a crack team of designers. 5th Studio is a
radical, innovative, can-do organisation ready to take on any challenge.
We regard design as a catalyst for change. We think big, while our
work is grounded in the particular conditions of each project and site."
