Australian Institute of Architects Public Architecture Award – 2011

Description: Bonython Community Hall provided an exciting opportunity to create flexible, multi-use spaces that could cater for various community needs. The architectural manifestation of the project has played upon the decision to provide two halls. Each hall has been treated as an extrusion perpendicular to each other and separated by a light filled glass entry space which allows a legibility of form, differing relationships to external spaces and acoustic separation. The larger hall reaches to the north with a fully glazed end elevation allowing deep penetration of sunlight. The smaller hall provides a more private setting by connecting the internal spaces to a semi-enclosed outdoor space created by the rotated extrusion.
