Te Rangi Recreation Facility

Posted on 13 December, 2012 02:30am

Archoffice was the selected architect to provide a concept design for Te Rangi Recreation Facility. The plan has been designed with flexibility and potential future expansion as key drivers.

A simple building form has been used. The multi-use space on the northern side and the service core on the southern street front elevation provides good connections and optimizes access, outlook, sun and wind protection.

A long singular and mono pitch roof form unites the different elements giving the building a sculptural and figurative presence, alluding to the idea of a canopy of trees. Patterned fibre cement lasercut panels to the underside of the canopy structure will be translucent to provide a dappled, verdant and changing quality of light beneath.
