Ross Milbourne Sports Hall, University of Technology

The University of Technology Sydney commissioned PTW Architects to design a Multi-Purpose Sports Hall and Teaching Facility.

The facility accommodates an indoor playing area for a multitude of sports as well as separate Gymnasium, Dance Studio and other teaching facilities associated with both the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Business.

The project is located beneath the Campus Alumni Green, and supports a substantial green roof, also collecting water for the irrigation of the Green.  It uses innovative up-lighting and realises material minimization through exposing the excavated rock face as a finish and using natural surfaces and renewable sourced materials where appropriate, such as the bamboo sports floor. The Sports Hall is envisaged to support the university’s sustainable campus initiatives.
