Commendation For Joondalup Lakeview Function Centre

Jul | 2014

CHRISTOU have received a Commendation from the Australian Institute of Architects - WA Chapter for their design of the new Lakeview Function Centre at Joondalup Golf Resort.

The architectural premise of the project was to create a large volume function room using minimal means.

The project, lead by Associate Director, Steven Smyth with Associate Director of Interior Design, Kirsty Griffiths and Associate Director, John Main continues a successful partnership with the team at Joondalup Resort. CHRISTOU designed the award-winning resort in 1991.

The state of the art facility will cater for the growth in function business.

The function room can be divided into smaller spaces to hold events from weddings to trade shows. Facilities include a pastry kitchen, service bar, storage, back of house, guest reception and a pre-function area opening on to a terrace and courtyard.

Catering for up to 700 people, the vast space benefits from an abundance of natural light and connection to the outdoor environment.

The roof connects through to the pre-function and external terrace areas extending the sense of space.

The back of house areas are constructed from limestone and are buried in to the contour of the site, connecting the building physically to the sites history as a quarry.
