Project Profile - Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre

Publisher:MPA The Concrete Centre

The use of concrete at Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre was fundamental to the low energy strategy for the building, combining natural ventilation and high thermal mass. The cast in situ concrete rib slabs create sculptural concrete soffits; concrete walls, stairs and columns express the grain of the plywood formliner that they were cast against. The concrete structure provides a robust and material efficient backdrop for the activities of the community.
