New Zealand sporting facility receives architectural spruce up

This commission was for the redevelopment and additions to the existing Tri Star Gymnastic Club facilities to accommodate the Regional Gym Sport competition and is located in Auckland, New Zealand.

The new facility is to be constructed in 2 stages. Stage 1 works, now completed, include all ground floor facilities, with the exception of some ablution facilities and a store room/stair on the north face, so visually there will be little change to the exterior of the building following the initial stage 1 works. Stage 2 works will consist of the full development of the first floor area into community rooms, lounging areas and a small café and access to the south of the main gymnasium into which is to be constructed tiered seating on the upper level to provide spectator viewing.
