Cardel Place was designed to respond to a landscape that slopes 5m across the designated site. The entrance from the west provides the more social components of the facility and is linked with a grand hall down a playful ramp to the athletic level. A separate entrance to the west provides an extended operation for the arenas on the west of the building. The form reflects the unique rugged geography of the area.
