Construction is complete. The library is coming to life!

We heard the local community say you wanted a state-of-the-art, environmentally sensitive, creative, technologically enabled, library and community space, that catered to the diverse needs of the growing local community.

The feedback we received has given us a greater understanding of the aspirations for the hub, including who will be using the space, what type of community activities and creative spaces you would like included so that we could design a space for the whole community to enjoy for generations to come.

The designers have incorporated your feedback to create an inspiring library design for the Armstrong Creek town centre.

Have a look at the design images or watch the video for more detail.

Construction is complete and the library will be operational in coming months

Design development

Detailed design was finalised based on feedback received from the stakeholder and community feedback.

The facility has been designed by Buchan Architects, who worked with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation to create a ‘Living Water’ narrative.

The design narrative

Nestled in the heart of Armstrong Creek, the new Armstrong Creek Library and Community Hub not only provides a place for learning, but a place for locals to gather and grow together. The fluid waterways of this landscape to the Wadawurrung People are part of a much larger ecology and have been a natural meeting point and travelling route for centuries offering a place of sustenance, fluidity, fertility and spirituality, known as ‘Living Water’.

Just as Living Water gathers and nourishes us, our vision for the new library and community hub is to gather and nourish the people of Armstrong Creek at a central meeting point; a place of inspiration where the community and future generations can thrive together.

The site has views to Wurdi Youang (the You Yangs) and Mount Duneed, and near to Lake Connewarre, all of which are significant places for Wadawurrung People.

Buchan worked with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and the City in developing a ‘Living Water’ design narrative.
