We are pleased to share details of our latest completed community project, the Eastern Hub.
Since 2010 FMSA Architecture have been working in collaboration with the local community towards the establishment of a Hub for the East Geelong community and for Karingal – a not for profit organisation providing a range of services for people with a disability or mental illness, older Australians and those who are disadvantaged.
The new Eastern Hub provides day services for people with an intellectual disability integrated with community centre facilities open to the public. Inclusive by design and culture, the Hub can be accessed by all people within the community. The design solution focused on encouraging a positive interaction between people of different generations and backgrounds who may meet at the facility to eat, drink, garden, attend a course, training program, meeting, sporting event or even an after hours or weekend function.
The new building also facilitates the provision of support and training services for people with a disability or disadvantage. It serves the needs of a wide range of inter-generational community groups who use the Centre as a meeting place.
Since opening in late April 2016, the Eastern Hub has been embraced by the community and the Karingal users. Congratulations to the FMSA team – Riordan, Elise, Adela and Sonya; our consultants and builders Rendine.
