TSB Hub Events Centre
Jackson Architects won this project on a design competition basis, and provided design team management, flooring and seating procurement, and interior design services. This multi purpose indoor sport and events centre project also brought together court and field sports to maximise use of the facility. The building was located adjacent to the High School. By combining two existing sports halls with the new one, an economical solution was achieved. This large building was ‘book ended’ with bronze ‘corten’ steel walls and orchestrated by a central ‘hall of fame’. This was expressed at each end by double height glazed entries, finished in vibrant yellow. The grandstand for the premier rugby ground backs onto a multi purpose lounge/entertainment area. Multiple catering options are provided.
