The West Wing Replacement contains locker rooms, a badminton centre, and a gymnasium, all large, windowless volumes on a tight, prominent water-front site. The building is conceived of as a large sculptural roof concealing the bulk of the large volumes within. The roof slopes down towards the heritage centre block where the gymnasium pops up under a dormer-like structure. Circulation is placed around the exterior walls to maximize glazing and views.
