Positioned in Gloucester, NSW, the project seeks to redevelop the empty Dairy Farmers factory on the edge of town. Adaptive re-use, the project seeks to regenerate a thriving, pro-active and diverse community within the town through the development of community owned, built and run social and cultural common.
Primarily, this project seeks to engage in the re-establishment of Gloucester’s community autonomy and identity after industry and self-governance is continually removed from the town. I hope to explore an architecture that prioritises people and places that the increasingly urban-centric architectural discourse forgets. To develop a practice of architecture that builds and sustains more than the physical extent of the building, offering architectural discourse and collaboration on a collective future to all.
