Waikato Snooker and 8 Ball Club

Located within Hamilton CBD, the recent retrofit of the Waikato Snooker and 8 Ball Club contradicts the criteria normally applied to facilities of its function.

Slotted between 1960s-style buildings, the facade, an atypical material palette of rusted steel, precast concrete, opalescent glass and deeply rendered entry doors, is intended to conceal the internal function as is usual for a gaming facility, but plays well with the curiosity of the casual passer-by, presenting the contradiction of a fortress wanting to be discovered.
