An exercise in simplicity: Two rectangular wings with simple skillion roofs house the change rooms and essential sporting pavilion facilities.

They are positioned to directly address the two ovals, while creating a welcoming gesture on the entry side. External walls to the wings on entry side are concrete tilt-up panels for efficiency and robustness they are treated as a canvas for a landscape graphic giving a unique identity to the facility. These solid wings sit in counterpoint to the highly transparent social space that joins and reconciles the geometry of the wings.
