Having completed the fit out of the WRU Players’ Lounge at the Principality Stadium, we were also appointed by them to refurbish the existing home changing rooms.
Since the changing rooms were often used as a location for TV interviews, as well as being a part of the Stadium tour, the design needed to be impressive and feature plenty of branding. The interior refurbishment of the changing rooms not only had to look good but also needed to reflect the modern requirements of the team and game. There was also an opportunity to match the style and design of the Players’ Lounge.
Since it was being used by the players, as well as getting regular footfall from people taking the tour, the features and finishes needed to be robust and durable. The ceiling had the same exposed air conditioning units and ducting as the Players’ Lounge, requiring a similar solution to incorporate them into the new design.
