The project scope was to develop a new sporting reserve, which includes a 1,300m2 Club Room facility, two AFL sized ovals, with associated sports lighting & car parking. Uniquely, the development is situated on the flank of an existing native ‘Banksia Woodland’ reserve, which was to be retained and to be impacted minimally throughout the project establishment.
The built form is heavily informed by the native Banksia – through the implementation of similar patterns, serrations, colours and textures.
The serrations of the roof profiles echoing the sharp geometries of the Banksia leaf; the colours of the soffits & fascias reflecting the natural tones of the Banksia Woodlands; the brickwork patterning mimicing the triangular forms of a dried Banksia seed; the bright yellow organically curved feature columns punctuating through the facade, a gentle homage to the bright spectacle of a Banksia flower in full bloom.
