Canvas is working in partnership with Mirvac & the City of Whittlesea to deliver the active open space and associated sports pavilion for the delivery of early amenity for the benefit of the community of Donnybrook. Canvas’s design for the Community sports pavilion that reflects the needs of the community, Council and representative sporting clubs of Donnybrook & the surrounding precinct. The design response considers the capacity for the facility to play a key role in further establishing Donnybrook as a destination while providing for multi-purpose flexible spaces that support the physical sporting and passive recreation needs and interests of a growing community.

 

The pavilion is expected to host community programs and/or or events for Olivine residents and the surrounding community including council run programmes and events. This facility aspires to echo the spirit of the surrounding estate, providing a setting that future residents and greater community can occupy, embrace and make it their own.

Canvas approach to the builtform on this formerly agricultural land is to embrace regional authenticity ofthis region and as the basis for the narrative and context of this place. Theelongated planning arrangement of this facility extends north south flankingthe grove of mature red gums that sperate the east and west ovals. The buildingexpression is defined by the dynamic roof form that ribbons the edge of the redgum grove as it moves down the site. The building base separates itself beneaththis roof, into a changeroom wing to the south and a community wing to thenorth. Both wings are modelled with rounded edges permitting a flow of movementaround the facility and encouraging lines of passive surveillance between theeast and west ovals. The roof form is elevated as a singular ribbon skirtingthe canopy of this facility articulating that play of moving daylight throughits delicate scalloped metal cladding. The lower-level brick skin also presentsas a ribbon skirting the building footprint, giving way on occasion to allowviews in and out. The texture of the brick work references both the knittedtexture of cricket jumpers and the banding of footy scarfs that represent theprimary sports played at this facility.
