Project: Rowing Club + Leisure centre Location: Woolwich Royal Arsenal, London The Site Locality

London Map (with M25)

West Thamesmead/Woolwich Royal Arsenal Map

The Site Thamesmead Lakes are a very peaceful environment and are sometimes used for sailing, all lakes are connected by canals winch are used for canoeing with pedestrian routes on each bank. Area of focus: The riverside of Thamesmead West has been developed heavily over the last 10 years unfortunately in 2008 all the new houses and riverside flats driopped in price heavily but with the new Royal Woolwich Arsenal developments and the new Crossrail extension thisng are expected to turn around very soon. The Royal Arsenal was founded by Henry VIII in 1515 and reached its greatest extent during World War I when it employed over 100,000 people. Ordnance production ceased in 1967 and the Ministry of Defence closed it in 1994. It was given to the London Development Agency in 1997 and it is currently being adaptively reused into housing, office space, and retail.


The Brief The Charles Brawnson rowing club based in East London and is open to adults of all ages and abilities. Although very successful, with crews at Henley for 12 of the last 13 years, they pride themselves on their friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

The Client

Founded in 1866, Charles Brawnson Rowing Club has been in Greenwich, without interruption for over 130 years, through 2 world wars, based in various boathouses. In 2015 the Charles Brawnson Rowing Club would like to open their very own training facility and clubhouse on the River Thames in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. The building will be a prestigious training facility as well as an admirable venue. The Charles Brawnson Rowing Club would like to bring back to life the Old Coaling Pier of Woolwich Royal Arsenal, by using the existing body as a host to this project. As part of the urban developement taking place in Woolwich Town Centre and the Royal Arsenal a the programme for the Rowing Club has been added to a mixed use venue which will increase the economic value as well as the the culture of Woolwich. The complete programme for the mixed use venue proposed to house a rowing club, private dining suites, and a multi-purpose conference area, as well as recreational facilities, a small exhibition gallery, and the fitness center.

Navigation The building has entrances on each of the levels, which allows visitor access through all local modes of transport. This building is also shaped to not take away from the landscape which is in itself a transport route. The rowing level (-1 Level) is devoted to the rowing club completely however it is connected to the rest of the building. All other parts of the programme are at ground level which have great views to the surrounding context.

3D Context Section

As Thames Water (London’s water supplier) make plans to upgrade London’s 150-year-old sewage system, which would result in a huge improvement in water purity, this drawing explores the rowing club programme with the current state of the River Thames. It is currently clean enough for boat sport activities but not other water activities. Maybe with an new sewage system in place we can expand the range of water sporting features to the programme.

actual drawing length 2425mm


3D Visualisation The main circulation space of the sport centre connects all sports activities, in this space users can observe sporting activities through the glazed walls of studios and courts. In this image we see the squash courts on the right hand side. This main hall has four light wells and connects to two atrium’s. All of these systems connect the main hall with the exterior environment as well as offering natural light to this space.


3D Visualisation The rowing tank room is part of the rowing club in the lowest level of the building. Here Elite Members are able to train all year round, rain or shine.


The kayaking pool maybe one of the most exciting places in the programme. The pool is a training base for those new to water sports but kayaking mainly. With real waves in this 1800m2 pool real teaching can actually take place, which will prepare users for kayaking on fast paced rivers.


This shot gives a birds eye view of the site with the scheme built. On race day this entire space will be covered with fans and visitors standing buy to catch a glimpse of the race and enjoying the festivities on the roof.
