ephemeral vaulting by australian studio CHROFI spans sydney's marsden park

australian architectural studio CHROFI introduces the marsden park amenities, a sculptural multi-use community center within the urban context of sydney, australia. the expansive project will provide change rooms for sports teams, a covered outdoor community space, a small kiosk and public toilet facilities for a new suburban community in marsden park. with the building, a winning competition entry, CHROFI explores the concept of a structure which generates a unique spatial character toward its interior while simultaneously offerings an abstract, recessive landscape element externally.

the design of the marsden park amenities by CHROFI is expressed in the negative volume between the canopy and the ground plane. with landscapes by JMD design, a raw structure, direct and straightforward in its tectonic expression yet ephemeral and playful in its spatial character. it is a structure that aims to embody a civic quality through its inverse form, serving as an anchor point for a new local community. this structure aims to provide more than just shelter and utilitarian amenity, but also an element of joy and delight.
