Designing Space for Sports and Arts: Design Guidelines for Sports and Arts Facilities in Primary Schools for Dual School and Community Use.
This guide offers general design proposal guidance for sports and arts spaces in England's primary schools, where these types of spaces can be used by both school and community members. The guide also presents case studies to provide examples of good practice. The primary shared space for sports and arts activities is the multipurpose main hall, and detailed specifications are covered for this space. The guide also discusses ways to deal with dual use design challenges in order to promote higher design quality and allow for innovation. Practical everyday design considerations also addressed include security, accessibility for disabled persons, health and safety, and environmental issues. There is also advice for designing dual use spaces that support and supplement the key areas and enhance the quality of experience for all users. (Contains 26 references.) (GR)
