Located in the Victorian suburb of Donvale, the 6,000m2 stadium is one of the largest community sporting facilities in Melbourne’s east, featuring five multi-use indoor courts and seating for up to 500 spectators.
Kingspan Evolution panels provided the smooth finish and aesthetic appeal of a traditional aluminium façade with the additional thermal and sustainability benefits that an insulated panel provides.
Combined with Kingspan Shingles in three striking shades of gold, giving the stadium tonal variation for the aesthetic that the architect wanted to achieve.
The Shingles are fixed directly to the substructure with discrete stainless-steel clips and rivets, folding into interconnecting tile like shapes, creating a distinct pattern.
The unique powder coated surface of the Shingles delivered an economical alternative to the specified anodised finish, with a transparent single coat providing the desired aesthetic at a fraction of the cost.
