Community Centre Design | Fitzgibbon Community Centre | Richard Kirk Architect
Richard Kirk Architect in April 2010 to design a community centre for the new Fitzgibbon neighbourhood.
The centre is a response to the common suburban landscape within which it is sited. The regenerated bushland fringe of the site has been used as an unregulated dumping ground for vehicles and other refuse, which has over time degraded the landscape. The Fitzgibbon Community Centre design responds to this treatment in built form, by redefining and redeeming this relationship to the landscape as a piece of artwork within the environment.
