Hauraki PlainsCommunity Centre
The architectural concept for the community center is comprised of three functions; a Library, Auditorium and Offices. These functions are based around three different forms all tied together through light shafts and pathways. The library is inspired by a modern forms and materials while the Office looks through thin timber battens representing bales of shrubbery as a reference to the adjacent school’s emblem. The multipurpose community center is designed to cater for a wide range of audience from schools, public, town visitors, town events such as movies, presentations and also hiring or leasing of office spaces.
