The easy approach to this Men’s Shed & Sports Amenities extension in St Leonards on the Bellarine Peninsula would be to ignore the “ugliness” of the existing building adjoining. Instead, Cotter Reid Architects embraced the raw brickwork and developed a contemporary extension that uses brick to transition from the past to the future. Constructed from pre-finished, robust materials that require little maintenance, the completed facility includes a new Men’s Shed, Change rooms for players and umpires, public amenities & storage.
