lahznimmo architects along with Grindley Constructions were shortlisted by Landcom to submit a design and construct tender for a new community centre at the Prince Henry development at Little Bay, Sydney. The coastal site for the community centre lies amongst the manicured landscape of the Coast Golf Club and overlooks Little Bay Beach. The design seeks to respect and enhance the landscape setting by allowing its continued dominance and by avoiding making an overbearing architectural statement. Also significant in this rationale is the awareness that the community centre occupies a rather central part of the visual foreground for much of the Prince Henry development. The building therefore represents a response to the need for a recognizable identity and gathering place for the community and yet also have it recede into the landscape where possible to maintain views for residents overlooking the centre.
