A Dynamic Sports Centre for Perth Western Suburbs

Bendat Basketball Centre

Form & Function
The building’s form is an expression of its sports function in an athletic and dynamic manner. The curved metallic Colorbond profile of the facility established a distinctive and unique slender fuselage form. This design choice not only enhanced the visual appeal but also allowed for a continuous, unifying structure within the defined boundaries. The building, boasting a seating capacity for 2000 spectators, presented a clear and legible profile visible from all angles. Rising from the flora corridor in the south, the building climaxes with a series of masts and cables heralding its presence to the street as a clear manifestation of its sports function. The aesthetic narrative of the building speaks of athleticism and movement.
