Sports Pavilion, Balliol College Master's Field


The Pavilion is part of the multi-phased Master’s Field development for Balliol College, Oxford. The overall masterplan comprises eight purpose-built student accommodation buildings, a professorial flat and the sports pavilion.

The new sports pavilion is centrally located in the site and overlooks the Master’s Field cricket pitch. The pavilion houses a full-sized squash court, changing facilities and a multi-purpose hall for hosting cricket teas and recreational gatherings.

Its lightweight, highly bespoke timber structure – made from sweet chestnut wood - frames panoramic views out across the cricket pitch through sliding windows that lead onto an elevated covered terrace. Inside, the hall enjoys an intricate stacked timber lattice ceiling with integrated clerestorey and perimeter lighting to provide optimal user-control to host a range of functions.
