BRAMBUK CULTURAL CENTRE
HALLS GAP, GRAMPIANS, Victoria
Refurbishment and extension to existing aboriginal cultural centre ensuring integrity of original design was maintained. The Brambuk Cultural Centre was originally created to represent the cultural heritage of the Jardwadjali and Djab Wurrung and aboriginal communities of south-western Victoria.
The 800m2, two storey building was originally designed by architect Gregory Burgess. In 2007 Select Group were appointed to evaluate maintenance works which resulted in refurbishment of the building and an extension for additional administration offices.
The unique design of the building incorporated the use of local sandstone, natural timbers and a striking curved winged roof profile. The organic expression of the building was maintained with a subtle refurbishment and sympathetic extension that maintains the integrity of the original design.
