A new ‘home’ for netball in Queensland
This new community sport, elite and developmental training facility is the signature home ground for the Queensland Firebirds (netball) and also more recently, the Brisbane Bullets (basketball). Our efficient design has delivered world-class courts, player facilities and an administration area within a challenging budget.
The administration area includes external meeting spaces and boardroom space, reception and amenities.
We collaborated with Netball Queensland to review its existing ‘traditional’ work space and investigated the transition to an open-plan layout. The central open space has views to the north, and is flanked by support spaces including quiet work zones and resource rooms.
The administration area flows down to a communal breakout space, where administration staff and development players can mix and engage. An expansive deck enables staff and players to enjoy the lovely Queensland outdoors.
Internal finishes are strong and neutral to act as a backdrop for Netball Queensland’s achievements. Elements of native timbers highlight special spaces in functional and effective ways.
