Our design embodies the architecture of tropical north Australia through a responsive connection to the landscape. We incorporated the latest technology throughout the complex including top-quality passive environmental systems.

The brief for the centre to be an accessible, multi-functional community hub was met through a variety of water and dry activity spaces. The two pools have ramp access and aquatic wheelchairs. Artist Jill Chism created the dynamic artwork at the entrance and on the perforated facade panels.

Parap Pool is more than an aquatic centre – it’s a social place that brings people, activity, leisure and wellness together.
