December 2021 saw a flurry of activity across a number of sites to achieve completion prior to Christmas, including the Denman Village Community Centre at Denman Prospect. AMC was engaged by Capital Estate Development (CED) and Denman Village ELC to provide architectural and interior design services for the new Centre, which forms a key part of the Denman Village precinct. The architectural concept responds to the changing site levels and the need for an easy pedestrian connection with the public carpark. The architectural expression utilises contrasting materials, angled and curved geometry, folded roof forms and large expanses of glazing to create a striking built form that takes its cue from the adjacent shops, also designed by AMC. Skillfully constructed by Nikias Diamond, this high-quality development incorporates an early learning centre at ground level with a community centre located above, both of which benefit from expansive views and excellent solar orientation to create light-filled interiors and dynamic external gathering spaces. Internally, timber and natural stone materials are contrasted against off-form/precast concrete elements with coloured glazing elements adding a sense of fun and interest to playrooms.
