2015 Waikato/Bay of Plenty Local Awards Winner
Bay Oval Trust Carrus Pavilion
Located within a large community park between the Port of Tauranga and seaside Mt Maunganui, the new home for Bay of Plenty Cricket has been designed with aplomb. The pavilion, which meets the requirements for hosting international cricket, while serving the more prosaic requirements of local users, is both robust and elegant. Thick timber beams and in situ concrete walls ensure the building will endure any hard knocks, while the distinguished curve of the pavilion roofline, echoed by the sweeping terraces of the foreground, reflects the sweeping geometry of the oval itself.
