Bringing new life into old, to further community engagement.
In the centre of Walkerville Terrace sits the stunning Walkerville Civic and Community Centre. Its striking design – a perfect blend of stylish contemporary mixed with the charm of yesteryear – ensures it can’t be missed.
The $7 million redevelopment of the Walkerville Civic and Community Centre included demolishing the existing centre and restoring the Heritage-listed town hall to its former glory.
Design Challenges and Creative Solutions
The new centre features council chambers, an office area and community library and bears a distinctive diamond feature on the external walls making it unmissable by passing motorists. Inside, the exposed polished concrete floors, timber ceiling and feature lighting make this more than the average civic and community centre.
The town hall was thoughtfully restored, which included patching stonework, demolishing some sections and installing heritage-style doors and timber jarrah flooring.
