Dulap Wilim Hub Sunbury

Sunbury is located in one of Melbourne’s four growth corridors, there is a need for new community facilities that will bring together a diverse and growing population.


Content Studio was asked to design a community and learning hub that could be shared by three organisations: Hume City Council, Sunbury Heights Primary School, and Sunbury Downs Secondary School. The ambition was to connect the school communities to the greater community of Sunbury. Content Studio was also briefed to see how our design could acknowledge the Wurundjeri people, the traditional owners of the land.


Content Studio undertook extensive consultation with the three stakeholder and the neighbouring Sunbury community. We designed a building that accommodated community facilities, a new kindergarten, a commercial kitchen, and consulting rooms for family services. The Centre’s primary address faces Sunbury with secondary addresses to the two schools. We worked with Sunbury-based indigenous artist, John Patten, on a public artwork commission telling the story of Jacksons Creek.


We also worked with Aunty Gail from the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation to give the building a name that acknowledged the Woi Wurrung language.
