Bond University Sports Science Building
Varsity Lakes, Gold Coast
BDA Architecture has been engaged to design a new Sports Science Building for Bond University.The project brief was to create an interesting and dynamic composition of building form when viewed in close proximity from ground level and also when viewed from a distance in the context of the University.
Conceptually the building form comprises three primary elements or building blocks as follows:
2. Exercise rooms and offices
3. Changing facilities
The three rectangular blocks are aligned in parallel forming an abstract composition in plan
Externally, the building form is broken into a series of smaller scaled elements, which will form a balanced composition when read as a whole.
The design outcome is intended to result in an elegant and visually interesting new Sports Centre, which should provide considerable amenity and enjoyment for all users and become a complementary and respectful addition to the Bond University campus.
