Join Law Architects’ Senior Associate Jenni Webster, in conversation with Dr. Martyn Hook, to hear reflections on the Melbourne Award 2019 Urban Design Winner, the Carlton Learning and Community Hub School project.

Learn how the existing three-storey school building was transformed to include an integrated early learning centre, family services centre and community hub. With its signature element, the Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA), the project has raised the profile of the primary school and created a hub of community facilities where families can come and connect from birth through to the end of primary school.

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
