For 40 years Austral Bowling Club has been a local watering hole and a friendly place to meet friends, socialize, play bowls, or have a cold beer. Recently it's undergone a big facelift. The new developments incorporate articulated facades and off-set roofs to minimize the perception of building bulk. A combination of outward and inward facades minimize the impact of the building when viewed from the street and beyond. The outcome is a building which takes into account the planning guidelines as well as combining contemporary design with the desired future character of the locality.
