The form of the building was influenced by Ringforts located around the site . The circular form allowed for all dressing rooms to open off a central Gym area in a radial pattern.
This also allows the building to function with a minimal amount of staff.
Offsetting the first floor back from the ground floor perimeter assists in reducing the massing of the building.
The use of native stone to the ground floor elevation helps ground the building and integrate it with its surroundings.
