Incorporating indigenous cultural practices into the landscape

Opening in 2012, the Bubup Wilam Aboriginal Child and Family Centre was born out of a need for an improved facility for the Aboriginal community in the Thomastown area, in Melbourne’s north.

Designed by Hayball, the design features a strong sense of community identity and belonging, representative of a secure and nurturing environment with a focus on the integration of indoor and outdoor spaces.

We’ve recently completed a Yarning Circle for the centre, creating a new space for children at the centre and the broader community to learn from Traditional Owners, who can pass on cultural practices and values to future generations.

Our construction team worked collaboratively with council on site to incorporate indigenous cultural values and principles into the project.
