Runaway Bay Youth Centre

Location: Runaway Bay, QLD
Project type: Architecture
Budget: $1.5M
Status: Completed
Organisation: City of Gold Coast

COMPLETE have been engaged by Council for a number of projects on this site including feasibility studies, a proposed Sport Centre and a proposed Youth Centre. The challenge to COMPLETE was to design a very low budget building with high performance criteria including the ability to sustain rock band performances.  The surrounding residential area informed the shape of the performance spaces acoustic performance, along with a challenging passive ventilation system. From a design perspective COMPLETE implemented a number of strategies to assimilate the differing user groups including a panel decoration which humanised the visual scale of the building.
