ELF 2B – Enhanced Land Force Stage 2 Phase 2B Gymnasium and Pool (BVN Conrad Gargett)
Three rectangular buildings, a swimming pool, indoor courts and workout rooms, form a courtyard around a fig tree at Enoggera Barracks. Plain, robust and economical architecture provides an appropriate sense of order. A deceptively simple indoor pool hall, crisp and white, is created by concise glazed edge design.
General Electric Headquarters, Springfield (Conrad Gargett)
GE headquarters is a well detailed D+C office in Springfield. The fan shape plan allows views to the north and welcomes the public park into its realm. A large pergola at roof level filters light and provides protection to the public domain. Sunscreens activate the façade and control the program.
