YMCA Caloundra

GYMNASTICS HALL, CALOUNDRA

This state of the art gymnastics facility at YMCA Caloundra was completed in 2016. It is an extension to an existing hall and also provides new administration space and amenities. The requirement for an economical building solution resulted in the use of pre-formed concrete panels. These walls provide thermal and acoustic insulation to the large space of the hall and also create a clear identity from the street. Each panel was cast with a repeating pattern of abstracted ‘Y’ shapes, which closely echo the YMCA logo. Large panels of translucent sheeting and louvred panels, combined with large industrial fans, provide passive lighting and cooling.
