Halcyon Glades over 50s community at Caboolture North has started work on a $3 million lifestyle facility.

The recreation club, designed by DC8 Studio Architects, has been aptly named the Long House, after a traditional type of multi-use building designed to foster a sense of community.

The new space will include an indoor gym, library, cinema, craft room, dance floor, outdoor terrace and function space.

It will also feature a pool, lawn bowls, tennis and bocce areas, and a small court for badminton and ping pong. DC8 Studio Architects’ Brett Anstis said the project was inspired by Caboolture’s landscape and culture.

“Urban country music and travel through outback Queensland were two themes that informed our vision for this project,” he said. “Our approach to the project is also about welcoming your return home, while remembering the journey and connections to the dream of travel.”

Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann said the club would be a main feature of the estate.

“A lot of thought has gone into the design,” he said.

“We wanted to deliver something special, something different to what we’ve done in the past, and something that pays homage to the community’s unique location.”

The Long House is scheduled for completion in early 2016.

The $68 million Halcyon Glades project welcomed its first homeowners earlier this year.
