2016

  • Abbotsleigh Sports Hall

    The Abbotsleigh sports complex development comprised of the design of a new multi-purpose sports hall, elevated hockey field, fitness classrooms, tiered spectator seating, amenities and VIP viewing room. The multipurpose sports hall houses three sports courts in a column free 56m x 38m hall and is elevated, creating space for undercover parking, fitness classrooms, plant and storage spaces. In addition to the sports hall, an elevated sports field was constructed over a post-tensioned banded sub deck with additional car parking housed beneath.

    The main architectural feature is the portal frames, seated on concrete plinths, that span 38 metres. The roof structure, made up of the frames, suites the architectural brief and generates rafter-column interaction. These details hide the pun bracing in the roof zone and eliminate diagonal fly bracing.

    Complementing the main structures are a number of curved access walkways and feature stairs to suit circulation between the various areas on the undulating site. To connect the two areas, a link structure was cut into the batter slope which houses the support facility spaces.

    The 2016 Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Architecture Awards were announced at the National Arboretum on Saturday 25 June, with a record forty-six project were entered into the awards this year. “ACT architecture has seen a revival in the past few years with some world-class projects coming to fruition,” said ACT Chapter president, Rob Henry. “It is an exciting time to see the role the profession can play in making Canberra’s spaces better for locals and visitors alike.”

    The award’s highest honour, the Canberra Medallion, went to Bowen Place Crossing by LahzNimmo Architects, which also won the Sir John Overall Award for Urban Design.

    “The project is an exemplar of a thoughtfully instigated competition procurement process,” said the jury. “The foresight to imagine the scope and possibility for an urban landscape element of poetic scale and enduring contribution, adjoining Lake Burley Griffin in the Central National Area, is the key to the success of the intervention.”
