Ar­chi­tects of change


Comment News (Gosnells) - - Comment News -

THE Gos­nells Bowl­ing Club is set to ben­e­fit from some of Curtin Univer­sity’s bright­est young minds as they plan for a potential new club­house.

The club hosted a visit in­volv­ing nearly 100 stu­dents from the univer­sity’s ar­chi­tec­ture school as they ex­plored the con­cept of a new clu­b­room.

The club­house would be one of the main fea­tures of the club’s 20 year busi­ness plan.

Club pres­i­dent Peter Charkiewicz said their cur­rent clu­b­room was too small for their 370 mem­bers.

“We’re try­ing to ac­com­mo­date all our bowlers, es­pe­cially dur­ing so­cial events. We have to close the event weeks be­fore we hold them cur­rently,” he said. “At the mo­ment, if we have a bowl­ing day, the bowlers want to use the rooms af­ter the event.”

Mr Charkiewicz said it was im­por­tant the whole com­mu­nity could use the clu­b­rooms.

“We’ve been ap­proached to hold so­cial events on Satur­days but we just can’t hold them due to the lack of space,” he said.

The new clu­b­rooms would have two sep­a­rate rooms, one for func­tions and one for so­cial use.

Mr Charkiewicz said the re­sponse from the Curtin stu­dents was en­thu­si­as­tic.

“I’m in­cred­i­bly ex­cited. We ex­pected in­ter­est but not as much as we got.”

Boon Lay Ong, Curtin’s head of ar­chi­tec­ture, said they were pleased to be work­ing with the bowl­ing club.
