Situated in a wide and relatively isolated place, Wanangkura Stadium with its facade formed by graphic patterns becomes visible as a landmark.
Wanangkura Stadium is built in 2012 and designed by ARM Architecture, and it functions as a multi-purpose recreation center. The facade design is aimed to be as a differentiating landmark, and it draws attention by shining and wavy patterns. The entrance hall of the building is positioned in front of the facade, which is also designed by halftone pixel technique. The dualENAMEL vitreous enamel Panels, a new cladding system for metro stations, tunnels & facades, are used as facade material, mainly because of the stained-glass enamel panels allows a durable and ageless design. Since the use of color is at high gloss levels, the intended effect of vividness and being a landmark are fulfilled.
The building is situated in South Hedland, Australia. The name “Wanangkura” comes from the a local Aboriginal language called Kariyarra, and means “hurricane.” The stadium hosts various local sport practices, as well as some other social activities.
The main building consists of interior sport areas, courts, and gymnastic floors.
The roof of the building is tough as a second facade, mainly because of the tough climate around the region. The black and white roof gives reference to the local football team, allowing to form a landmark for the sports fans being in flight. The roof is also visible from the ground and oval periphery.
