An all-in-one community hall fits seamlessly into its freshly masterplanned surroundings on Canberra’s south-eastern outskirts.
Residential hub Googong Community Centre is an all-in-one residents’ clubhouse, located in the new, self-contained Googong township. The hall incorporates a gym, cafe, sales and marketing suite and multi-function space, plus a lounge area, 25-metre indoor lap pool and an outdoor resort-style lagoon pool.
A competition-winning design CIC Australia selected AJ+C’s hall design, which responds to both the brief and the site. Complementing its surroundings, the hall’s gently undulating form is inspired by Googong’s natural landscape. It is also carefully sited to enhance the neighbourhood’s curved entry road, with views over a grassed mini-common.
All in one place AJ+C’s all-inclusive hall removes the need for residents to join an external gym or pool. Integrating well into the newly masterplanned township, Googong Community Centre provides a welcoming, convenient location for neighbourhood catch-ups.
