The Abbotsleigh school design features a focus on innovation, sustainability and comfort.

AJ+C architecture practice was commissioned to design the new Abbotsleigh school's multi-purpose sports hall and sports field as well as a 166-vehicle parking area, function rooms, change facilities, an artificial turf sports field, grandstand space and reconfigured access roads, pathways and landscaping.

The design features a focus on innovation, sustainability and comfort. The facility’s southern end curves to transition into an extended roofline beyond the actual building. This creates a visually remarkable profile and conveys a sense of energy and movement. Ecologically sustainable design is incorporated throughout, with natural ventilation a key feature of the design. The building’s major sporting hall will not require mechanically assisted heating or cooling.

The design is also functional and integrated. The building provides the large volume required for team sports, while featuring facades broken down in scale by Woodn composite bamboo louvers and screens to blend into the school environment. Materials and finishes harmonise with the surrounding bushland palette. Woodn is species unica.
