Located on a 143-acre rural site, the new Gore Meadows Community & Sports Centre is a unique multi-programmed facility containing over 300,000 s.f. Inspired by the agricultural and natural landscape, both the building design and signage reflect a modern attitude to design, yet are mindful of its past heritage. Conceived of as the new “Centre of the Community”, the facility combines sport, fitness, and library services on one site and under one roof. The central organizing element of the building is a timber framed public galleria that stretches along the main façade and links the community centre, aquatics centre and public library. The facility design also includes a future indoor soccer centre with a gently arching wood diaphragm structure above the FIFA soccer pitch.
