A CONTEMPORARY U The brief to Evolution Architects was to create a new, slightly larger and more contemporary cricket pavilion for Chelsea Preparatory School in Durban, South Africa. The site was previously an existing cricket pavilion, but aesthetically, the new design is completely different to the existing building. The pavilion is located between the upper and lower cricket fields and is orientated to maximise views towards the existing cricket fields on both sides of the building. The idea was for the cricket pavilion to tie in with the existing adjacent grandstand and it was designed to have a simple, contemporary feel. 46
