Designed to remain current for decades to come, modern and iconic elements
make up the angular and vibrant aesthetic of the Treendale Community Centre.
n close collaboration with the client, Scott
Penn Hall Architecture + Interior Design
has created an energising atmosphere for an
interactive communal club.
Designed for a minimum 40-year lifespan,
lifecycle cost and the provision of high-quality
amenities were key concerns of the client. The
designers were able to condense the brief down to
the core requirements. Impressively, this allowed
the team to strategise construction materials and
methodology to reduce the budget from $5 million
to $3.6 million, without compromising on design
philosophies or design outcomes.
Aesthetically, the aim was to create a vibrant
and iconic space that was light, bright and airy,
without feeling sterile or devoid of character.
Angular geometry throughout the design
references the triangular nature of the site, while
multi-coloured slot windows pay homage to the
organisation’s Anglican roots.
The building’s materials were carefully selected
for durability, longevity and minimal maintenance
regimes, while the main pragmatic considerations
for finishes to the interior addressed acoustic
issues and appropriate slip ratings.
The list of key suppliers for the project includes
Austral Bricks, Midland Bricks, Crosby Tiles, Ibrahim
International, Muldoon Tiles Supply & Fix, Shaw
Contract Group, Laminex Group, Forbo Flooring
Systems, Tarkett, ISM Objects and Dimension 8.
