FaulknerBrowns cleared for Portsmouth Uni sports hub

LDA Design's public realm

LDA Design is behind public realm improvements

FaulknerBrowns and LDA Design have won planning for a £53m sports centre plus public realm at Portsmouth University.

The city’s council approved plans for the pavilion-like building which features a largely glazed ground floor allowing pool users a view of the surrounding park.

The project will also see the surrounding area improved, with new pedestrian paths, a plaza and an urban orchard to be added. The public realm scheme was drawn up by landscape architect LDA Design.
