Site Q2 KXC – Sports Hall

Bennetts Associates’ project for site Q2 at King’s Cross is a sports hall and gym for Camden Council. As it is directly above the tunnels leading out of King’s Cross Station it is a low-rise, lightweight structure, using cross-laminated timber to create a series of long spans with mono-pitch roofs. Internally the timber panels are exposed to view; externally it is heavily insulated and then clad with standing seam black zinc. The angular profile of the roofs catches the eye from York Way.
