The design of the Sarawak Youth & Sports Complex cum New Aquatic Centre presiding in the central hub of the city covering 7 acres will provide one of the best sports training facilities in the country. The centre complete with a modern, all-weather 8 lane competition pool under a large canopy will also have an administrative block with lecture halls, a 500-capacity multipurpose hall (four badminton courts), two hostel blocks, a cafeteria & gym as well as small facilities for futsal, basketball and volleyball.

The design addresses contextual consideration of the site; long linear frontage next to a major city artery with heavy rush hour traffic, surrounded by mid-rise public buildings & residential homes.The rhythmic facades, layering of spaces, deep roof overhangs & horizontal louvers all adds into a wonderfully orchestrated play of volumes, surfaces, shades & shadows. The verticality in the columns of the façade adds depth & transparency, conceived to break the form down to human proportion & scale, and highlights the notion of movement in rhythm with the moving vehicles along the road.
