Library and Community Hub at The Dock
Architect Clare Design and Hayball
Architect: Clare Design and Hayball, 2014
The Dock community precinct incorporates the Library at The Dock, Buluk Park and the Community Hub at The Dock. The built form is inspired and shaped by its historic wharf and industrial maritime setting. The Library at The Dock was the first 6 star Green Star rated public building in Australia. In addition, using CLT as the primary structural material reduces the weight of the building by thirty percent, which has worked favourably as the building sits on a seventy-five year old wharf.
