Waikato Diocesan School for Girls - Sports Education Centre
The Sports Education Centre has been designed to complement the distinctive character of the existing school campus, while creating a suitably modern educational environment. The location and orientation of the building within the campus creates a unique outdoor courtyard space, while the glass facade with timber sun shading helps the contemporary building blend in with its natural surrounds.
The 1200sqm two-storey centre, commissioned through a design competition and designed to 4 Green Star equivalence, accommodates a gymnasium fitness room, classrooms and changerooms, offices and shops.
