Long Tin Au

PROJECT 1: THRESHOLD


TINSLEY CANAL, SHEFFIELD

Joint project with Ethan Zhang

Situated in between the River Don and Sheffield Canal, the aquatic centre aims to cater to the needs of beginner and experienced kayakers. The free flowing roof form mimics the pronounced displacement of water, whilst the prominent glass facades accentuates the view of the natural environment. The kayak centre features changing rooms, storage rooms, equipment drying areas, loading docks, and a bar and social area.
