Community Health & Wellbeing Precinct – Clem Jones Centre, Carina


A development application has been lodged for the expansion of the Clem Jones Centre Building to provide a number of new community health, wellbeing and recreational services, located within the south western corner of the site, at 401 Stanley Road, Carina.

The proposal seeks to provide contemporary designed buildings to provide for additional tenancy floorspace, targeted at sporting related allied health services, peak and second tier sporting organisations, as well as other community partners.

Vehicle access provided to Zahel Street is retained. Pedestrian access is provided front the existing local shopping centre and does not propose any connections from the local street network.

The planners at Urban Strategies state, “The architectural design considers the significance of the development and reflects the cutting edge facilities creating a streetscape vocabulary inspired by and using innovative forms referencing the aquatic nature of the facility, the technological core of the project and innovative function. The proposal will also involve an update to the existing buildings that are to be maintained on site with new building skins and complimentary detailing”.

“Screening and light-weight elements are interwoven within the building fabric and are enhanced with balconies and roofing that create liveable outdoor spaces. Abundant deep planting, shaded areas and glass facades ensure the building responds to the unique climate”.

“The design also considers the character of the surrounding neighbourhood through the scale and built form of the proposed buildings. The facade bulk is also broken down into sub elements with proportions that ensure a village feel appropriate to the suburban location. Colours are also used to reduce the scale and provide a palette contextual for the central aquatic facilities”.

The proposal seeks an addition of 1672sqm of gross floor area (GFA), with 2,681sqm of site cover over the  subject site.
