Energy efficiency takes precedence, with
Netball Central being illuminated by daylight
via a pattern of Ampelite skylights and wall
cladding that enable training to occur without
requiring artificial lighting during the day. In addition, the combination of angled blade
walls and Lexan light-diffusing materials assist in preventing the glare of direct sunlight interfering with play. Importantly, passive heating and cooling principles of the natural ventilation and thermal labyrinth have been incorporated within the building striving for comfortable conditions year round without
supplementation of artificial energy.
