Milson Island Sport & Recreation Centre wins Silver Medal in Cologne

Allen Jack+Cottier has been awarded the Silver Medal at the 2013 International Olympic Committee / International Association Awards for Exceptional Sports & Leisure Facilities for its Milson Island Sport & Recreation Centre in Brooklyn, Australia. The scheme was the only submission from Australia to win a prize.

The project involves a recreation hall for young people and sports a graceful canopy structure topped with twelve wind turbines. These turbines are combined with continuous floor-mounted ducts to naturally heat the facility in winter and cool it in the summer months.

Speaking on the award win, Michael Heenan, CEO and Principal of Allen Jack+Cottier said: “An International Olympic award is the ultimate accolade: given by the world’s leading sporting organisation, won against some of the world’s best sports venues. As a sportsman and an architect, I can say it absolutely doesn’t get any better than this!”
