Piara Waters Sports Pavilion is Complete

Piara Waters sports pavilion is now complete, and we’re very happy with how our ‘glowing eaves’ concept has turned out!  

Ryde Olympic Aquatic Centre

 

Ryde Aquatic Centre is better known to most people as the Sydney 2000 Olympic water polo venue.  This exceptionally large aquatic venue had a very demanding set of requirements as it needed to fulfill two quite separate functions:  Firstly, it had to present Australia on the world stage as a high-technology world-standard olympic venue; but secondly it had to function as a fully working community aquatic and sporting facility after the Olympics, while maintaining economic feasability.

 

Extensive briefing of the client and stakeholders was the key to Donovan Payne Architects’ success.  This involved defining the exact requirements of not only known users, but projected future conditions as well.  Ryde Aquatic Centre now consists of 25 and 50 metre pools, wave pool, water play areas, spa and sauna facilities, disability program pool, turbo channel, sporting courts and facilities, gymnasium, offices, and cafe spaces.  To this day, Ryde stands as one of the largest and most successful aquatic centres in Australia.
