This new facility is home to three local junior clubs – cricket, football and athletics. Two under-used sports fields at Clarence High School are connected via the insertion of a wedge-shaped building. The terrace between the two buildings links both fields to allow events to be viewed from both sides. The two cylindrical-like forms are wrapped tightly in a skin of metallic bricks. Internally, the main spaces can transfer from change rooms to class rooms, along with a community function centre if required.
