Clarence High School Sports Pavilion

Clarence High School Sports Pavilion

Tasmania’s Clarence School Sports Grounds and their Pavilion seem a vital and well geared machine. Visiting mid-week, for a twilight Little Athletics meet, the streets and car parks are full. Crowds of children and parents fill the space with an intense, positive ambiance. The pavilion, set in a sea of colorful family tents, has the all-important kitchen and kiosk at its center. This space offers a prime view of the athletics track for volunteer staff, so they miss none of the excitement.. This design ensures volunteers, so necessary for successful community events, are considered and included, so the pavilion sits easily within its social context as well as the landscape. Efficient and generous, it contributes to the myriad of activities it generates without demanding attention itself. The quiet efficiency is the mark of an elegant response to the architectural brief. The obvious enjoyment of the users is equally due to the effective organisation of the community group, and a design that focuses and supports their efforts.
