A new nocturnal look - Melvin Sports Complex

Sacrifice function to form? Out of the question! The Melvin Sports Complex in Northern Ireland successfully combines both requirements.

Located in the town of Strabane in Northern Ireland, the Melvin Sports Complex needed urgent renovations. The operation was led by McGurk Chartered Architects, who wanted to restore the centre’s modern image while creating an extension that would include four new sports courts. “More globally, the project aimed to optimise the quality of the town’s sporting infrastructure and allow it to host local and regional competitions,” explains Colm McGurk.

User comfort
For the extension, the architects recommended using Danpalon® doubleskin panels on the three main facades, “This translucent solution bathes the main space in diffuse natural light. We also chose two different Danpalon® finishes, the exterior surface is clear with a Softlite finish, while the interior is a soft ice colour.” explains the architect. As well as the concept of user comfort, the firm also worked on the product’s nocturnal presentation by incorporating several lighting effects into the extension’s facades. At night, the building comes to life in a decidedly stylish and futuristic way!
