Starbox Architecture designed flexible football club change rooms that incorporate amenities for local junior clubs, state league city club, AFLW, and AFL in Devonport, Tasmania.

The existing Devonport stadium club rooms had inadequate amenities for a growing club, non-standard facilities for AFL/ AFLW games, and structural columns that obstructed pre-game preparation.

The existing undercroft area below the stadium seating was the maximum buildable envelope, so the Starbox Architecture designers had limited space to work with.

However, working with a structural engineer, they managed to remove rows of structural columns which opened up the internal space.

This provided enough width within the change rooms for pre-game preparation including drills and delivered flexibility to divide the space into separate male and female areas.
