Billabong Church And Community Centre

400 seat Auditorium, Community & Childcare Centre, Offices, Functions Hall, Library, Commencement early 2013, ≈ $4.1M

This project will create a new community hub in the middle of the burgeoning Canning Vale Estate in Perth’s southern suburbs.  Earmarked for development for over 10years the site will now finally see change with a new community centre, including an auditorium, childcare centre, café, library, meeting facilities, office space, shop fronts, and public open space all bordered by a landscaped natural waterway and billabong.

The brief from the client has proved to be quite complex with a need to carefully manage the interaction between competing uses on the site.  The client also adopted quite a progressive, youthful and playful attitude toward aesthetics that directly reflects the young family demographic of the surrounding community.  Motus quickly latched onto this, and incorporated a number of curving walls, flying angular roofs and brightly coloured features that embrace and celebrate this attitude. This mixed use development is still a work in progress.  Construction value ≈ $4.1M
