2020 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Dilworth Junior Campus Sports Centre
This joyfully coloured sports centre, squeezed between a motorway and the school’s rugby fields, has a more playful presence than one might expect from this type of building. Background colours and materials co-exist happily with the existing school buildings. The composition is enlivened by the bright colours of the screen walls representing the school’s House colours, with additional coloured lighting used to celebrate House milestones and achievements. Careful consideration has been given to creating a sustainable environment, through the use of natural lighting, passive ventilation systems and photovoltaic cells to supply the building’s energy requirements.
