English Street Community Facility

The new English Street Community Facility is proposed within the future commercial precinct of the Kinbrook subdivision in the emerging Melbourne suburb of Donnybrook. Located 35km north of Melbourne the design of the building references the semi-rural past context both in form and materiality. The design of a contemporary shed is blended with the future context of the house and land typology of solid masonry with lightweight construction above and pitched roofs.

The material palette of weathered steel acknowledges the rural past and tall facades of glass announce the building as a modern and open public facility.

Location: English Street, Kinbrook Estate, Donnybrook
Value: $1.65 million
Status: Design
