Client : Shire of Corrigin
SITE have researched Corrigin’s history to inform the building elements, palette of materials and forms of the building. These include the water tower (right), the windmill, local flora and the rural shed. Our research into Corrigin’s history and unique sense of place uniquely for the site, Corrigin locale and the Corrigin community.
The external aesthetics is appropriately simple and rural with a touch of modern sophistication to allow the facility to comfortable sit in its current environment but remain relevant in to the future.
The building is four sided and each elevation addresses the site in a different way, therefore each elevation is considered important.
The concept revolves around four pavilions: the sports hall, the football pavilion, the hockey pavilion and the function hall.
By breaking the facility into these four parts, the pavilions can operate independently and take on their own identity using colour, materials, etc and therefore each ‘wing’ may have a different name in commemoration of past citizens of Corrigin.
