Architectural and Interior photoshoot, new sports centre, Ashville School, Harrogate

November 24, 2017

These images are from my second volumetric building shoot in recent months. This time I was working for Caledonian Modular who specialise in the large scale off site construction of volumetric buildings, such as high rise hotels, residential and educational buildings. This new building was at Ashville School in Harrogate and replaces old facilities at the front of the sports hall with a new reception, staff offices, visitor café, gym, dance studio and changing facilities.

Normally with modular buildings it is easy to see where the modules intersect and how the unit size impacts on the design layout. With this building I got no sense of the modular construction and would have assumed it was all constructed on site which is a real testament to CM's design and construction methods.

The exterior was relatively easy to photograph and I just had to wait until the afternoon to make sure the sunlight was falling across the main elevation to provide plenty of contrast revealing the form and detailing. The interior images were more difficult as the large south facing floor to ceiling windows needed careful placement of lots of off camera flash units to balance the daylight.
