KINGBOROUGH COMMUNITY HUB

MARCH STUDIO AUSTRALIA as Architects

The Kingborough Community Hub reflects the needs of a community. Our vision was to weave programme, architecture and landscaping together to create a rich and vibrant community asset. Central to the project is flexibility, reconfigurability, and sustainability. A building for all, a future town square for a suburb that is yet to be built. KCH is a proud civic gesture constructed from ultaltarian materials, a robust piece of public infrastructure to serve the people of Kingston, and to be shaped in anyway the local residents see fit.

Previously the Kingston-High-School, Kingston-Park is a Council lead development designed to address the affordable housing crisis in and around Hobart. An area of 11.3 hectares has been slated for redevelopment, forming what will become a new town. The gymnasium was the final building that remained intact from the high school. A fortified structure of concrete, steel and blockwork, whilst over-engineered by the Public-Works-Department in 1971, embodied charm. The distance memory perhaps, of children at play required some effort of preservation.
