Putting Great Use to Community Spaces: Dingley Village Library

Dingley Village Library and Community Centre, in Kingston City Council Victoria, was nominated for an Australian Library and Information Association 2021 Library Design Award this year. While the project did not take home the top gong, there were some fantastic comments from the judges about the flexible, modern gathering space.

"Dingley Village Library and Community Centre did a spectacular job at improving an under-utilised aged building. There is a great use of space with a flow from outdoor to indoor areas. The warm welcoming tones and clean Australian design works with the surrounding environment." Said the award judges.

"The library fits the size of the area and focused on what the community needed and made that their priority which resulted in a beautiful community library and community centre. The library has many areas for a range of different community needs, it demonstrates what can be accomplished through thoughtful and clever design."

NBRS are pleased to have created a new space with the Dingley community, a place to learn, relax, gather, socialise and thrive. We look forward to seeing the wonderful things the community achieves through this vibrant new space.
