Waterloo Oval Youth Facility

Award winning design – 2013 National Award for Public Infrastructure (Australian Institute of Architects).

The transformation of the existing Youth Facility has seen the construction of an innovative and ground breaking facility for the local community.  This building has been designed using environmental sustainable principles with high levels of thermal mass and use of recycled and recyclable materials.  The structural steel roof canopy unique in form will support the growth of climbing plants surrounding the roof top terrace.  The construction of this building will form the benchmark for community architecture of future buildings.

The building was offically opened by Lord Mayor of Sydney (Clover Moore) in August 2012.


Revitalising an existing services block, the new-look building is designed to house the disadvantaged youth and family counseling service WEAVE, a not for profit organization.
