This project consists of the planning and design of a new sports building and landscape in a former military precinct bordering Rawson Oval and the National Park in Mosman. The sports hall, has a large volume of internal space and provided a significant challenge in this visually prominent location. The building has been cut into a steep embankment to reduce the overall height of the facility and provide passive cooling through the thermal mass of the embankment. Strategically placed louvres harness the prevailing breezes and utilises the twin wall insulated skylights, which provide natural lighting throughout the year. The inclusion of a photovoltaic solar array on the roof has delivered a building with excellent environmental performance.
