Acclaimed community project strongly embraced by users and Council
Integrated architectural and landscape solution in sensitive parkland setting


The design responds to the significant natural features of the surrounding environment.

The new building responds to several key factors of the site; positioned with two ovals either side and a playground to the north.

Natural features including established significant trees and the considerable fall of the land, required a responsive and clever environmental solution that is sensitive to the landscape.
All faces of this building are significant, with finishes and materials of Corten and composite timber used to respond to the natural elements on site.


Collaborative briefing and engagement with variety of user groups has resulted in a building that makes a statement, extruded and cut out to embrace adjacent facilities and dynamically reach out to greet its users.


"This building is a fantastic recognition of the quality of Council buildings – its innovative, environmentally sustainable and reflects the local character of the area"

Michael Heffernan
Mayor of Bayside

The facility comprises:

  • Social space, amenities, kitchen and internal store
  • 4 change rooms with amenities, including for DDA
  • Umpire Change Facilities
  • First Aid Facilities
  • Three External Storerooms for each key user group
  • DDA Compliant Public Amenities

The Social space opens towards the North to welcome northern light and address the adjacent playground.

Each side embraces the landscape.

Enriching spaces. Enriching Lives.
