Thermally and Aesthetically Enhanced
The proposal will see the removal of the existing asbestos cladding. Replacing it will be an updated insulated cladding system. The intended aesthetic will ensure the existing semi-industrial aesthetic will develop into a more refined version of its former self.
New Dormer Windows
In the main the mass and scale of the existing building is maintained, however, the addition of vertical elements to the roof create opportunity to establish a stronger elevational presence whilst allowing high level windows that allows light to flood into the internal spaces.
A New Entrance
A branded entrance helps give the building more of an identity, as well as giving practical shelter and security. We designed a carefully composed architectural element that incorporates ramped access, with steps, planter and canopy.
The overall storage strategy has been consolidated and re-organised to better suit the different functions and requirements. Flush doors and handles on the built-in storage unit allow for a durable and unobtrusive surfaces within the multi-purpose hall.
