Project summary

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.

Western Australia Jury Presentation

The Frankland Park Development is a proud community asset six months into operation; bustling with activity seven days a week. Home to six community groups & two sporting clubs who regularly use the site weekly for formal activities; while there have been hundreds of casual bookings at the site as well as people using the open areas passively. The co-location & appreciation to the local area design principles have certainly hit the mark, even with the significant site constraints allowing all members of the community cooperatively operate with over 800 members at the AFL club and 250 members of the baseball club.
