Prince Henry Community Centre

The coastal site for the Prince Henry Community Centre lies amongst the manicured landscape of the Coast Golf Club and overlooks Little bay Beach. Immediately to the north is a small chapel, used by locals for non-denominational services and weddings and considered as something of a local landmark. The building form is expressed as an assemblage of 3 primary parts, the first of which is a low slung landscaped roof encompassing the public circulation and common spaces, staff related areas and support spaces such as toilets, storage, kitchen and dressing rooms. Set 2.5m below existing ground level this element serves as an abstract interpretation and extension of the existing landscape, providing a field in which to locate the larger multi-purpose space and auditorium. The change of level from footpath to entry provides for an amphitheatre and north facing forecourt.
