Mansfield Hosiery Mills


The aim was to format a design suitable for use by both the football club and the wider community.

Initial designs incorporated an alumimum roof which set the building apart from it’s surroundings and giving it a distinctive “statement.”

Following a feasibility assessment it became clear that form over function had to be developed within the context of the overall project and whilst being aesthetically pleasing had to be affordable and fit for purpose.

With this in mind, a redesign saw the inclusion of a traditional roof to enable the project to be completed within the strict pre-set budget.


We were approached by Mansfield Hoisery Mills Football Club to design a new purpose built Sports and Social Club on their exiting site.
