This project comprises of a new competition grade gymnasium for Cowes Primary School, in Phillip Island. The design specifically addresses the educational objectives of the school and provides a facility which positively impacts the school and broader community on Phillip Island.
The design includes competition grade basketball and netball courts, music room, studio, kitchen, storerooms, changeroom facilities which can be utilised by the pool, as well as an outdoor amphitheatre/external teaching space connecting directly to the native bushland.
Architecturally, the building has been designed to settle into the surrounding landscape using neutral and translucent materials. Views are intentionally framed out towards the bushland and through to the pool, always locating the building within its immediate surrounds and providing a direct connection to the landscape.
