Foster Stadium Official Opening


Melville 1-3

Melville Oval Buildings

We have been engaged by Southern Grampians Shire Council to design & document the redevelopment of the recreational precinct in Hamilton, Victoria.

The project includes redevelopment and extension of a existing heritage listed grandstand, a new recreation & community pavilion, new covered shelters and pop up bar, and the redevelopment of Market Plaza.

The pavilion will accommodate a function room, kitchen, kiosk, change-rooms, public toilets, office and storage spaces.

The existing grandstand and oval are identified as being of historic significance within the Victorian Heritage Register. The grandstand was constructed in 1905, and has local significance and historical associations with various sports and recreation activities.

Shell Reserve Pavilion

We have been engaged by the City of Greater Geelong to design & document the refurbishment of the change-rooms at Shell Reserve Pavilion in Corio, Geelong.

The facility has a mix of uses including football, cricket and netball. The reserve serves as the home ground for the Corio Community Sports Club (Football and Netball Club) and the Corio Cricket Club.

The existing change facility is no longer able to accommodate the continued growth of sporting participation at the reserve, and does not meet the standards of accessibility and gender standards of a modern sporting facility. The existing change facility will be demolished and a new female friendly facility will be constructed which will be a significant community asset.

Melton Civic Centre Master Plan

We were asked to prepare Master Plan options to extend the existing Melton Shire Civic Centre to cater for the rapidly growing needs of the Council.

The scope of the project was to prepare a site analysis to determine potential areas for extension, site connections, access and aspect. When creating floor plans we reviewed size requirements for existing staff and also allowed for future growth. We also investigated on site parking options.

The design includes staged building work to accomodate increased staff numbers, better access for the community, new councilor offices and a gateway to the suburb of Melton.

The building concept is intended to support strong sustainable design initiatives and building practices through passive climate controls and material selection.

Mirboo North Pool Redevelopment

The Mirboo North Outdoor Pools are located in a small scenic valley on Jordon Way surrounded by eucalyptus trees. A stream once ran through the site attracting locals to a naturally formed swimming hole, which was extened in the ealry 1900s. In the 1960s the stream was diverted to make way for the concrete pools. The pools and the filtration system were well passed their use by date and required extensive upgrading.

This upgrade included remedial work to the main pool and learn to swim pool, including the construction of new wet deck gutters, pool lining and disabled access. The existing toddler's pool was replaced by a new splash pad with an assortment of water play features. A new pavilion with community program room, kiosk, change rooms and family rooms has also been constructed. The site access is required to meet DDA requirements and ramps from the pools to the car park have been incorporated.

Upper Murray Events Centre

We were engaged by Towong Shire Council to design and document the new Upper Murray Events Centre in Corryong.

The centre caters for the Corryong Football and Netball Club and Federal Football and Netball Club. The new facility accommodates the football and netball change rooms for both clubs, a 240 sqm social space, two bar and kiosk blocks (one for each club), as well as a number of community meeting rooms and a new gym facility for Corryong Health.

We chose to draw inspiration from the old grandstand, by adopting the gable form in the roof, but repeating it in an array across the new building in a contemporary approach. The facility will be used for events such as “The Man from Snowy River” festival, which is a massive annual draw card, helping to generate good revenue to the local economy. We also drew inspiration from the stone cattlemen huts to help express the locations uniqueness.

Lakeside Drive Pavilion

The new pavilion at Lakeside Drive, for the Hume City Council, is a new social hub for the football and cricket clubs and houses a Social Room, Commercial Kitchen, Bar and associated amenities.

The building form is derived by folding its metal clad envelope into walls and roofline as a piece or origami.

Ardeer Sports Pavilion

This project for Brimbank City Council was to design a new sports pavilion at Ardeer Reserve for the local soccer club.

The building includes change rooms, referee's rooms, function room, commercial kitchen, first aid room and store rooms.

The club has a very strong community connection and therefore the social room was required to be used for a variety of different functions with commercial kitchen and bar.

Barrymore Road Reserve Pavilion

The Barrymore Road Sports Pavilion has been designed for the Hume City Council. Construction of which will be completed in January 2015. The building houses a multipurpose function space, commercial kitchen, change rooms, amenities, umpires rooms, a first aid room and storage spaces.


It will be located along the western side of two soccer fields, facing east. The brief heavily focused on developing a sustainable design. Our strategy was to incorporate passive climate controls by maximising natural light from the east, allowing for natural cross ventilation through the building, and creating a service zone along the western side of the building to house slimline water tanks. These will be used for flushing toilets. The service zone provides depth to the western façade that helps to protect it from the afternoon summer sun. High level operable windows have been positioned along the eastern façade below wide eaves that will provide shading during summer. The thermal mass of the internal masonry walls will help to temper extreme climate conditions by being exposed to direct sunlight in winter and fully shaded in summer.
Small modular windows have been inserted throughout the building to help increase natural light internally, and a 3m deep verandah is lined with trafficable polycarbonate, which will provide shelter to the front elevation while letting in winter sunlight.


The design is a practical approach that focusses on sustainability, incorporating low maintenance materials and minimising the risk of vandalism.

Melaleuca Community Hub

The project brief from the City of Kingston was to redevelop the existing Clarinda Community Centre by refurbishing Multi-purpose Rooms, providing new Pubic Amenities, Children’s Amenities, Kitchen, a Children’s Art Area, Store Rooms, and an Office.

The project included designing a new front façade and new roof line.

Our response was to strip back the façade, opening up the entry, and readdress the form of the building as seen from the street. Cement sheet and metal screens were used to create new forms, loosely based on the yin and yang symbol. The metal screens hang off the roof structure above, hiding LED lights that create a Japanese Lantern effect on either side of the entry.

Screening the windows also helps to shade the internal spaces and provide security at the point of entry.
