Ellenbrook South Community Centre
Fratelle Group was engaged to deisgn the Southern Sports Community Centre at Ellenbrook Distruct Open Space, a satellite facility to provide local services to the southern playing fields. Stakeholder engagement was carried out both with the Client and end user groups to ensure thewir specific requirements were included in the beginning. Significant co-ordination was required with the civil and landscaping consultants as much of the site levels and layout was still being developed by the City of Swan.
The building has been designed to be staged in construction, with additional toilet and change room facilities to be provided at a later stage after construction, as much of the infrastructure is not required at this stage. The design has been developed as a series of pods, that use the building’s orientation to maximise potential for both solar and water collection. The distinctive roof features represent the rolling hills that are nearby. A material palette of glazed bricks, formed concrete, and zinc cladding follow Ellenbrook’s modern design aesthetic.
