The Springvale Community Hub incorporates a large library and series of civic spaces set amongst a playful parkland, mirroring the culturally diverse population and urban context. It features a variety of learning, leisure, services, cultural spaces and the importance of representation and connection, fostering a sense of civic ownership. The result is a coalescence of cultures forming a diverse public space encouraging education, interaction and connection. This reflects the unique identities of its residents and the urban context in which it resides.
Guided tours with representatives from Dandenong City Council speaking about the project and its community impact. Plus, James Wilson, Director of Lyons, will speak about the design process and Michael Rush from Rush/Wright Associates will speak about the landscape design.
There is a children’s playground and a water fountain at the Hub and a play area inside the library.
