Project: Baldivis District Sporting Complex


The recently completed Baldivis District Sporting Complex was developed with a clear intention to engage with its beautiful natural surroundings, as well as the climatic conditions and functional requirements. With Danpal’s Seamless Façade, it was able to create a translucency that gives a connection to the outdoor setting, and it also gives glimpses of natural light that can eliminate the use of artificial lighting.
