Denmark Environment Centre
Denmark Western Australia, 2015
A not for profit organisation the Denmark Environment Centre’s original building was destroyed by fire in 2008. The new building replaces the destroyed administrative facilities, consolidates the existing retail space and incorporates new strata amenities and flexible rentable spaces. A key design concept was to link the towns main street located on one side of the site through the building to the river beyond. The existing rear facade of the retail space has been opened with a new glazed wall and main street passers by are now able to visually connect to the riverside park. Once entering the retail space users travel through a ‘learning passage’ to an external viewing deck that connects to the new administrative facility. The administrative facility is set back from the northern boundary allowing for passive solar design principles that reduce heating and cooling loads. The facility includes generous northern glazing with feature sun shading devices, high insulation levels and high performance glazing. The form and materials of the building reference the local natural environment of timbered forests charcoaled from fire and granite rocky outcrops providing shelter from prevailing winds.
