Hampton Park SC Gym
This jazzy Tschumi-esk gym refurb is Australian adaptive reuse as it’s finest – both gloriously punching above it’s weight & dirt cheap.
The project was to line a dilapidated double basketball gym that was devilishly cold in winter & excessively loud with two games on.
Celebrating the school’s colours, WOWOWA highlighted the existing structure in a red, to create a beautifully fine web appears across the vaulted volume.
This no scarlet portal frame was coupled with grey acoustic material that was both functional and contributed to the graphic feast running alongside the skylights.
A ginormous curtain now separates the courts & a thermal upgrade was actioned. Industrial size fans circulate the air and a full tech upgrade was implemented to increase the amenity of the space.
Overall, a slam dunk.
