Salisbury Community Hub awarded prestigious architecture prize
Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM has welcomed the acknowledgement of the Salisbury Community Hub within the 2020 South Australian Architecture Awards announced last night.
The Hub and its architect, HASSELL, received the esteemed Jack McConnell Award for Public Architecture as well as an Interior Commendation within the annual awards, which were held virtually.
The Hub was recognised as inviting opportunities for community use and having a strong sense of place – both by embracing the future with modern design and maintaining connections with our past, such as through the preservation of the cemetery.
The Interior Commendation was a nod to the Hub’s “highly effective spatial flow and volume, creating a range of opportunities for members of the local area to visit the Hub, make use of its resources and connect as a community.”
This year’s South Australian Architecture Awards were heavily centred on projects that have a considerable impact on the communities they serve.
