remote communities

Palm Island Children & Family Community Centre was funded under the “Closing the Gap” initiative by Federal and Queensland Government bodies.  The building was individually tailored to modular design parameters, built in factory and delivered to site, to ensure a cost effective strategy and minimise construction time on site.  Local community engagement enabled a participatory design process with a local elder, Alan Palm Island, providing the design for the front entrance door ‘green ant dreaming’.
