London practice Godsmark Architecture has completed work on the new home for Mitcham and Wimbledon Sea Cadet Cadet Corps in South London, UK.

The 1,150m² structure design features a single building that has been formed by combining two old facilities and is adjacent to Mitcham Common, according to arcitectsjournal.co.uk.

The new scheme is akin to a pavilion in a park and has been developed with MWL Developments.

At the request of the local planning authority, the accommodation block is built on the first level which offers views of the surrounding area and maximises transparency across the site.

The design also includes classrooms, offices, a command point and a multifunctional bar and main hall.

The structure is outfitted with porthole windows and metal cladding to give the structure a nautical feel.
