WAIS High Performance Service Centre

The Western Australia Institute of Sport (WAIS) is a new sports science, research and recovery building which provides state of the art training and testing facilities for Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games athletes. The facility is not only dedicated to elite athletes and the creation of sports champions. The institute also nurtures emerging athletes aspiring to state and national team selection.

The form of the building design responds to the nature of the organisation it houses, as well as the context of its surroundings.

The brief required an elegant design that embodies all of the institute’s functional requirements.

Our design solution provides a powerful symbol within an elite sports precinct. The articulation of the athlete’s physique in the built form embodies the organisation’s purpose: to provide opportunities for talented Australian athletes to achieve excellence in elite sport in an outstanding environment.
