Fratelle were engaged to complete the design of the Carine Hall Refurbishment & Extension, located within the Carine Regional Open Space which services many local sport & recreational user groups including AFL, Soccer & Athletics. Whilst the Open Space is heavily utilized, the Carine Hall facilities & amenities were 25 years old and desperately required to be upgraded.
The new design extended the existing refurbished building, & enveloped the facade to provide a modern & striking entry. The scope of work included redesign and re-arrangement of change room and shower & toilet facilities, incorporating improved natural lighting and ventilation to wet areas. The angled roof forms provide protection to the east & western facing windows, which allows the users greater viewing areas across the playing fields. The design provided much improved facilities for the sports clubs and users, as well as ensuring the building meets current BCA compliance. A palette of steel, concrete & render has been used to modernise the building, whilst remaining cost effective in its upgrade.
