Register now for an exciting LEA South Australia event

Tiwu Kumangka Community Hub, Blackwood

Join us for our first Learning Environments South Australia Chapter Event for this year at Tiwu Kumangka Community Hub, officially opened on 9 October 2023. 

'Tiwu Kumangka' celebrates the coming together of community services and library within the hills-based suburb of Blackwood. 

The name incorporates the word Kumangka (coming together) and Tiwu (Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo) to represent the return of the vulnerable cockatoo after increased sightings in the Blackwood area. 

The project is a catalyst for the revitalisation of the town centre, catering to the needs of locals and responding to the council's vision for a vibrant and active public realm. 

Tiwu Kumangka responds to its local context with a natural material palette and architectural details referencing the wide variety of landscapes within the City of Mitcham. 

The building's scale, visibility and accessibility invite the community to wander through its centre 'street', providing pedestrian access to the adjoining street, shops, cafes and Waite Street Reserve. 

The transparency and permeability of the building's design promote the shared experiences and activities within. 

Shifts in volume and scale invite enquiry, connection, creativity and exploration through flexible community spaces. 

The event will commence with a presentation at 4pm followed by a facility and site walk-around. 

Cost:   Members and Students $10.00 + GST

            Non-members $15.00 + GST
