The Inala Community Centre is a 700sqm Queensland Government owned facility designed to accommodate multiple agencies including a Youth Service, Community Legal Services and Community Centre.
Cottee Parker managed a team of consultants to design a dynamic and practical facility that meets the needs of these agencies and their clients. The building is planned around two wings with the principal entry at their intersection.
Connectivity is a key component of the design with visual connections between spaces. We held a series of stakeholder meetings with staff from the three agencies who are leasing the facility including Youth Services staff , Community Legal Services staff and Community Centre staff . All of these staff also participated in preliminary and review meetings.
Community spaces include reception and waiting area, Centrelink, admin and staff room, Meeting rooms, Multi-use activity room, Flexible outdoor spaces and recreation area, commercial kitchen, youth access space, computer training room.
