LENNOX HEAD COMMUNITY CENTRE
Client: Ballina Shire Council
Status: Complete 2011
Located in the heart of Lennox Head, the Centre comprises of a Sports Hall or Auditorium which seats 500, a children’s area, three meeting rooms and an activities room. It is also home to the Lennox Head Library.
Energy efficient principles and systems were incorporated in the original design, and included a large array of solar panels on the roof to provide power for the development.
The unique design features several curved towers and walls covered in mosaic tiles to provide an outstanding effect.
Boat building techniques were used to build the towers and what we have dubbed the ‘Beehive’, the administration component of the building.
The rich use of blended finishes and colour have kept community discussions busy.
External spaces and a skate park complimented the building. It has created a central focal point for the town of Lennox Head that has engaged all generations.
The facility has been used for countless community and private events including, concerts, eisteddfods, community information meetings, sporting events and fixtures and local markets. The open floor plan spills out onto Williams Reserve with ease.
