Overlooking soccer and cricket playing fields, this Auckland City recreational facility houses several tenants providing a variety of functions including a creche, aerobics hall, fitness club, sports clubs and other community uses.
Our project was a major upgrade of the existing building to allow for better access to the upper main floor and rationalise of the use of internal space. We were also asked to give the creche on the ground floor a complete make-over and add a major extension.
The creation of a glazed double-height entry and stairwell at the building's south-west corner provides a main focus and clearly identifies the centre's new entry point.
The space flows to the new foyer and reception upstairs, leading to the fitness club with new changing room facilities, and the refurbished children's party room.
