Thomas Field Hall: Covering Up

It is inevitable that there will be cables and pipework left exposed in unexpected and awkward places, and they need covering up. We are now designing cupboards and units to store vestments and paperwork, books and records and also conceal these horrors. 

The pictures show a particularly tricky corner with a very sculptural loop of pipework which was not foreseen and which has to be concealed, but the tap heads left accessible, with an access hatch in the slate floor which also has to be accessible. Then there are the cables in the corner to be concealed as well. This calls for some ingenuity!
