Kelvedon Park | AKA Architects

public architecture

The redevelopment at Kelvedon Park has provided inspiring facilities for the Taroona Football Club. With arguably the most picturesque ground in the country, the club now has modern facilities to match its iconic coastal setting. The pavilion stretches long and low between the pitch and the water, remaining respectful of its neighbours.

The sequence of spaces is well considered; a covered walkway leads past the change rooms to the function space, with framed water views revealed between the pavilions. The function space is located at the northern end, for passive solar principles, and opens out to enviable views of the Derwent River below. A covered verandah extends pitch side, providing an elevated and protected platform for spectators in all weather conditions. The simple palette of materials was selected to be durable, economical and beautiful. Abundant natural light and ventilation, combined with warm and natural materials, makes for a welcoming experience for participants to enjoy.

Client perspective:
How does the design benefit the way you live/work/play/operate/educate/other?

“Taroona Football Club’s new rooms at Kelvedon Park have transformed the club and set us up for a successful future. Already, the rooms have provided the Club with the quality facilities required to support our application to enter the Women’s Super League Competition which has led to our successful re-entry into top tier women’s football in Tasmania in 2021. Most importantly, the rooms have created a sense of excitement within the club and have created many opportunities for members to get together both with team-mates and others within the football community for training purposes and socialising.
