Warrnambool Learning and Library Hub
Development of a joint-use learning and library hub is a core component of the social infrastructure needed to support the future creative economy of Warrnambool. Construction has now commenced on the $20.25M Warrnambool Learning and Library Hub, a joint partnership between the Victorian Government, South West TAFE and Warrnambool City Council, due for completion in June 2022. Located at the heart of a campus that includes four places listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, the project is comprised of a three-storey contemporary addition linking to the existing Gun and Orderly Room constructed in 1868, which will also be extensively refurbished as part of the project to create the new main entry to the building. The ambition for the project is to produce an outcome of design excellence that will be the community anchor for the South West TAFE and Cultural Precinct and have its own identity as a community asset.
Acknowledgement of CountryKosloff Architecture respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land, the Dhauwurd Wurrung, also recognised as the Gunditjimara or Gunditjamara peoples, on whose land this project will stand, and pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.
