DINGLEY COMMUNITY CENTRE “A spectacular job of improving an under-utilised aged building. There is great use of space with a flow from outdoor to indoor areas.”

City of Kingston Council sought to upgrade the services provided at the Dingley Village Library and Community Centre through extensive upgrade works to the existing Library and Harold Box Hall. Located in Dingley Village at Melbourne’s south-eastern corner, the building adjoins local public sporting reserves. It forms part of the area’s community hub within walking distance to the local business district. The NBRS design comprises significant refurbishment to two existing buildings with a new central hub and foyer link. The two-stage project accommodates a market space, library, flexible meeting spaces, multipurpose hall, craft making and display room, community garden, counselling consultation rooms, maternal heath consultation rooms and a childcare facility. The hub and foyer link encourages a through connection between the main street and the local sporting reserves to the rear of the site. Car parks can be converted to market spaces for increased weekend usage, and a maker space included to encourage

small businesses and social enterprise development. A café/kiosk was included to assist in the activation of the space. An outdoor courtyard is attached to the library, encouraging children to use the outdoor space under supervision. The spaces are scaleable using operable walls, enabling Council to adjust them as needed for the space’s usage. The works enhance the site’s engagement with the main street frontage through a series of outdoor spaces intertwined with an existing ANZAC memorial. The spotted gum cladding was elected to reference the surrounding landscape Extensive ESD features were incorporated into the design, including a substantial PV array on the roof and high efficiency mechanical plant. Stage 1 of the works was completed in early 2020 and Stage 2, incorporating the consultation rooms and childcare facility, is currently underway.

ASPENDALE LIFE SAVING CLUB NBRSARCHITECTURE was engaged by the City of Kingston Council to design and document a replacement for the ageing Aspendale Life Saving Club in Aspendale, VIC. The existing club did not meet the current standards set by Life Saving Victoria, falling below the coastal inundation level which left it exposed to rising tides and undermining during storms. The proposed design reconnects the club to other public facilities, engaging with a coastal boardwalk to create a series of public and club spaces which provides necessary life saving supervision, first aid and kiosk services for visiting beachgoers. Private club spaces have also been incorporated, including spaces for members gatherings, change facilities and increased storage space for vehicles, boards and equipment. The architecture presents both the robustness and durability required for an exposed beachside location, whilst still embodying a pleasant and functional space for all to enjoy. The design is also reflective of the local timber cladding of the neighbouring beach shacks. Maintenance views for properties directly behind the club have also been considered, particularly in regards to the raising of the club to accommodate for sea level projections for the next 80 years.

SPRING FARM COMMUNITY CENTRE Forging a new community in Sydney’s South-West, Spring Farm has grown exponentially in recent times, with the population quadrupling between 2011 and 2016. With an influx of families moving into the Macarthur region a community centre becomes a central space in which to encourage and support a growing community’s identity. SFCC is designed to actively intrigue passers by to engage with the space. The large façade that flanks the community centre is punctured by a large screened window to show glimpses of the movement and activity happening within the Hall space to passers-by. The timber panelling intrigues people visiting the adjacent shopping facilities and allows onlookers a moment of pause and curiosity to engage with the new building. Additionally, the roof form is articulated to provide maximum visual impact on Richardson Road and Brookner Road to increase SFCC’s attraction from the road and to foot traffic. The new community centre seamlessly integrates the adjacent public park with the entry to SFCC. NBRS has blurred the lines of public and outdoor space and encouraging the community’s uninterrupted access to both.

BATEMANS BAY REGIONAL AQUATIC, ARTS AND LEISURE CENTRE The Batemans Bay Regional Aquatic Arts and Leisure Centre (known as Bay Pavilions) is a large community facility that has many opportunities to bring the local community together. It combines leisure, fitness, art, drama and dining into a much loved community asset.

NBRS led the community engagement process with the Wagonga Local Aboriginal Land Council, taking a flexible yet comprehensive approach. NBRS, in collaboration with Eurobodalla Shire Council (ESC), invited user groups to participate in focus groups so that their needs can be reflected in the final design. Key to the process was to understand users, activities and assets and to support an overarching concept, themes and secure the functional needs for a complicated $50 million facility. Of particular importance was for the building to capture the spiritual significance of “Bhundoo”- the Clyde River and “Ëurobodalla” - land of many waters. The theme of water and the importance of local landforms has infused the architectural design of the new cultural centre at numerous levels and connects the building to its traditional custodians. The engagement process also led to an

understanding that the proposed facility had a key role in the community as a wellness hub, expressed by the indigenous community as engagement in the circle of life. Finally, the local Land Council was eager to explore employment outcomes for the project, to understand what potential job opportunities may exist and to ensure that the design incorporated spaces that were welcoming to the Aboriginal culture. Following this engagement thematic/ concept designs were proposed, including proposing a range of wellness areas including spaces for the indigenous community to gather for art, dance and intergenerational support. The yarning circle included recognises the local heritage and enables the demonstration of local Aboriginal culture through story and dance. Wide, open spaces have been incorporated to reflect the welcoming spaces suggested by the Land Council.

SUTHERLAND ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE As a critical piece of community infrastructure, the refurbishment requires a carefully considered design solution that fosters artistic excellence. One that conserves and enhances this significant building and reflects the needs of the diverse Sutherland Shire community for the next 40 years. NBRSARCHITECTURE and CHROFI see three key areas of opportunity to create community and act as a catalyst for placemaking in the area. First and foremost, as a facility that fosters excellence in the performing arts, the rejuvenated auditorium as the key driver of the project, should provide the highest standards of technical and production facilities. Secondly, considering the Centre as a whole, with flexible spaces for multi-modal performance, the opportunity also exists for the Entertainment Centre to make its own civic offering to the Park by way of an active, versatile foyer space with the capacity in its own right to be the venue for a variety of public occasions. Lastly, improved interconnection and transparency between the Entertainment Centre and Peace Park, will evoke a sense permeability where the building feels a part of the park and vice versa. Activating the spaces external to the Centre will bring together this area as a key destination for the broader Sutherland Shire.

HILLSONG MELBOURNE EAST CAMPUS “ a vibrant hub, providing a platform for an energetic Christian community”

Hillsong Melbourne East Campus is a vibrant hub, providing a platform for an energetic Christian community. The current warehouse has been converted into a auditorium with a future capacity of 900 seats with sate of the art AV Technology, several breakout meeting spaces and a welcoming foyer. NBRSARCHITECTURE have expertise in the design of spaces where large numbers of people gather. Understanding people movement and navigation is key to create the right outcome. In this project a tiered auditorium has been inserted into an existing warehouse shell. Layers of

complex design resolution can be found in the delivery of the best outcome for acoustic definition and telecommunication environment. The auditorium is a controlled space with highly technical requirements for AV connectedness. The spaces that support the auditorium create a seamless connection of uses. The Foyer is a generous welcoming space where casual interaction is supported by a cafe type environment. The children and family facilities are purpose designed to be engaging and a pleasure to be part of. The composition of connecting spaces is easy to navigate and make being part of the church a safe and life filled environment.

MURRAY ART MUSEUM ALBURY “Large flexible spaces for the exhibition of art, with adjustable daylighting, controlled environmentalconditions and movable walls.”

The Art Gallery is located in the heart of Albury’s central business district, adjacent to QE2 Park, and it forms part of Albury’s Civic and Cultural Precinct. The project consists of the refurbishment of the existing heritagelisted Art Gallery building (circa 1910) and the adjacent Burrows House building (circa 1870), together with the provision of a new two-storey addition at the rear to accommodate major touring art exhibitions. NBRSARCHITECTURE worked in close collaboration with the staff and future users of the Gallery to establish their detailed requirements, and to create a facility that the Albury community will embrace. A large curved Foyer links the different elements of the project together and invites public access from both the main street and QE2 Park. The design provides

a contemporary glass and metal clad addition, while at the same time respecting the heritage character of the two existing buildings. The addition includes large flexible spaces for the exhibition of art, with adjustable daylighting, controlled environmental conditions and movable walls. The permanent collection will be housed in a series of smaller galleries within the refurbished existing buildings. The finished project incorporates a kinetic facade system, light sculptures, and interpretive art works, all designed to engage the public. Other facilities include a Gallery Shop, a Cafe/Restaurant with an outdoor Terrace, a Youth Members’ room, two Workshops for public participation and an extensive Collection Store.

RUTH EVERUSS AQUATIC CENTRE “A state of the art aquatic leisure centre for a wide cross-section of the local community”

The Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre redevelopment comprehensively transformed a 1959 swimming centre into a state of the art aquatic leisure centre for a wide cross-section of the local community, whilst retaining its significant heritage fabric. The project was undertaken in a creative partnership between our Architecture, Heritage & Landscape Studios.

The indoor facility provides a 25m lap pool, family leisure pool and program pool. Additional features include an attractive kiosk, foyer & civic forecourt, modern change rooms, a landscaped suncourt, an air conditioned viewing area for indoor 25m pool and a flexible space which can be used for meetings, programs and in conjunction with adjoining outdoor activities.

The redevelopment of the existing Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre provided a more attractive, flexible, cost effective and practical centre for the community. The rejuvenated Aquatic Centre now includes outdoor 50m & 25m lap pools to provide for swimming carnivals, lap swimming, springboard diving and waterpolo, an interactive water play area and an extensive surrounding concourse with spectator grandstand.

The landscape design associated with the upgrade of the REAC has created significant recreation areas for the benefit of the users of the centres, be they family groups, individuals or swimming club members. The landscape design expresses strong geometries and arrangements that give respect to the existing heritage building character and qualities.

WENTWORTHVILLE MEMORIAL SWIMMING CENTRE NBRSARCHITECTURE were recently appointed by Cumberland Council to provide architectural services to reinvigorate Granville, Guildford, Wentworthville and Merrylands Swim Centres. The Swim Centre Modernisation program seeks to address functionality and conditions of the four aquatic facilities which were originally built between 1936 1973. Key to the project is the development of modern, reliable and safe swim facility designs that promote year round community use and provide a place for locals to meet and gather. The Council’s aim was to rejuvenate facilities so that they become key destinations. The project’s success requires little to no disruption to each pool calendar therefore stakeholder engagement was

key to developing designs that meet the requirements of all users. Sustainability and energy efficient design solutions are integral to the NBRS team design approach. Cumberland Council has a portfolio of ‘endof- life’ pools. NBRS proposed 5 schemes [for 5 pools] to identify the optimum mix of revitalisation and upgrades across the portfolio whilst maintaining focus on the $40M budget. Key to the success was to focus spending on the higher performing facilities. NBRS provided tender documents for Wentworthville Swimming Centre on time and the tendered project came in on budget. We are currently engaged to Omnistruct to provide For Construction documentation and Construction attendance.

BATEMANS BAY REGIONAL AQUATIC, ARTS AND LEISURE CENTRE NBRSARCHITECTURE is currently developing designs for a new cultural, arts and leisure facility in the heart of Batemans Bay. The project offers an exciting chance to develop dynamic, inclusive and welcoming facilities that become a new cultural heart for the community. The design places a dynamic performing arts theatre on the prominent intersection of the Princes Highway and Beach Road. The theatre is a distinct but connected to the aquatics centre to the south. The façade is inspired by the imagery and history of the locale. Also located within the theatre precinct are arts spaces including wet and dry workshops and a gallery space. The theatre precinct includes a 350 seat theatre with generous foyer spaces including a bar, meeting rooms and commercial kitchen. The theatre also includes a large dance/

rehearsal space and back of house facilities including change rooms, performer facilities, loading dock and workshop spaces to provide a benchmark facility that will attract quality performances. The aquatics centre comprises a large 10 lane 25m indoor pool, separate warm water pool, change rooms, creche facility, café and an organic leisure pool with water play attractions. The leisure pool also connects to a learn to swim pool and the outdoor recreation area features water slides, splash pad, sun bathing lawn and cabanas. The pool hall has been carefully designed to maximise northern sun and allow for the façade to open up and connect to the outdoors when the weather is suitable. A gymnasium is positioned on the first floor and enjoys views down into the pool area whilst being available for after hours access.

WAVES FITNESS AND AQUATIC CENTRE “a conducive environment for teaching, mentoring and spiritual guidance as well as sports development” NBRSARCHITECTURE is collaborating with Hills Shire Council to transform the Waves Fitness and Aquatic Centre. Originally built in 1967, the facility serves as a social and recreational hub for the local community. Key to the brief is the creation of a facility that respects the heritage significance of the existing memorial, caters to a broad spectrum of the community and offers as much sustainability and efficiency across the site as possible. The design had to be in keeping with the Shire’s slogan - “Sydney’s Garden Shire”. The new facilities include a series of state of the art 50m and 25m pools, hydrotherapy pools, as well as learn to swim indoor facilities and an expansive gym. Other facilities include a commercial cafe, two community rooms and a club house. The project is a collaboration between the Architects, Landscape Architects, Wayfinding team and internal Compliance Advisors of NBRS.

QUEENWOOD SCHOOL FOR GIRLS

The Queenwood School - Lawrence Campus is located within the “amphitheatre” of the Balmoral beach-side precinct surrounded by residential properties. The northern and eastern wings of the existing building were retained and their structure re-adapted to accommodate the new science facilities. The new accommodation sits within the bulk and height of the previous envelope, thus maintaining views and solar access enjoyed by neighbours. The contemporary expression of the building exemplifies how education has moved on from the institutional and conservative styles of the 1960’s and looks forward with confidence. The building features exposed

concrete, plywood and composite panel aluminium and glass reveals the interior. The new accommodation includes an indoor 25m pool, training pool, covered basketball court, science labs and classrooms. The pool hall is enclosed by inclined 8 metre high glazed walls. 25m long box girders span the hall, held aloft by inclined T columns. The pool hall becomes an arena surrounded on all sides with corridors that afford gallery views of the pools. The teaching spaces maintain summer comfort by natural means. The pool hall is fitted with automated high level glass louvres. Pool-related plant has been engineered for year-round energy efficiency.

BARKER COLLEGE SPORTS GRANDSTAND & AMENITIES UPGRADE Adding a 500-seat grandstand to a leafy, environmentally sensitive war memorial sports oval at Barker College, Sydney, has resulted in a delicate incision that provides protected space for outdoor learning and socialising. NBRS’ design solution created 3 small canopy pods seating approximately 30 people each and one larger canopy including tiered seating with capacity for

500 people. The sensitive arrangement of pods enhances the landscape setting whilst maximising seating capacity. The canopies are exciting, contemporary, cantilevered steel structures arranged to maximise spectator engagement and to ensure protection from the elements. The larger canopy gently terraces from a higher landscaped space down to the main oval level.

NEWINGTON RESERVE PAVILION The Newington Reserve is a small pocket of green situated within the expansive industrial sites of Silverwater, Sydney. Located on Holker Street and Slough Avenue, the currently under-utilised site will be undergoing a revival to create a new sporting complex to service the surrounding area. The complex will incorporate a new synthetic soccer field, small training fields, public fitness equipment and community facilities such as seating and BBQ areas. To serve this new complex NBRS developed the design for the Newington Pavilion, which incorporates changerooms, kiosks, storage and public amenity into a compact footprint. Additionally, the Pavilion looks to create a new, welcoming face to the sporting complex as a home to current club members and public but also encourage new users to the site as the surrounding area continues to grow. The slimline building is situated between the new field and the main access point of Slough Avenue allowing the building to act as a new gateway into the site. The design of the building focused on 3 key design considerations: •

The first consideration revolved around a gateway moment. The location of the building coincides with existing pedestrian movement pathways across the site and closely aligned with the centre of the future soccer field. The

building’s mass was divided down the centre and separated to create a generous pedestrian thoroughfare through the middle of the Pavilion. This maintains the existing pedestrian movements across the site whilst also creating a gateway from the street parking that leads directly to the proposed field. •

Another key consideration was how to activate the prominent Slough Avenue and Holker Street corner. Highly visible to passing traffic, this corner contains the public BBQ area which flows directly into the Pavilion. To maximise the activity of this public focal point the Pavilion Kiosk was located on this façade, opening directly out to the BBQ are and towards the field.

The building was designed with a solid, lockable base to provide safety, security and privacy to the internal spaces of the Pavilion. Over the top of these ‘solid pods’ floats a generous roof canopy creating a veranda style space against the field edge and a sheltered public BBQ area to the North. This canopy has been designed to provide shelter and shade to all users, to the club while events are happening, but also to the community, providing generous public spaces when the remainder of the building is not in use.
