We’re proud on behalf of Hassell to have won the  Jack McConnell Award for Public Architecture and a Commendation for Interior Architecture for the Salisbury Community Hub at the Australian Institute of Architects SA Chapter awards.

We love these community projects, and we’re delighted at how the locals have embraced this one as their own – it’s worth checking out

From the Jury:

The architects have ensured that Salisbury Community hub displays a strength and consistency of architectural and interior expression from the external ground plane to the upper level.

The expressive foyer allows daylight to permeate the building’s spaces making the activities of Council staff and public apparent to each other. The design invites opportunities for community use, both internally and externally.

The building is sited immediately adjacent to a local cemetery and the design team has successfully embraced this unique site feature providing a strong sense of place for the building’s users, gently looking back to the past and nodding forward into an exciting future.
