YRC Belgrave Community & Multipurpose Facility Hub

 

Location Belgrave, VIC
Project Completion 2017
Project Size 1,400m2
 
Project Description Belgrave is an important gateway to the broader Dandenong Ranges communities. The new Belgrave Community Hub brings together vital, whole-of-life services to the Yarra Ranges’ outer eastern areas, where the demand for aged care services, disability services, youth services and early childhood services is increasing. The new hub includes multi-purpose rooms, consulting rooms, office accommodation, kitchen, outdoor play space, car parking and landscape works.
 

The project, as situated on a steeply sloping site, showcases the dramatic pitched-roof structure to the landscape below. Connections to the surroundings are reinforced with the organic & playful external material palette which includes brickwork, patterned precast concrete, reflective glazing and silver top timber battens. The spacious and bright interiors exhibit the complexities of the roof over and introduce bursts of colour for an inviting and uplifting user experience.
