The Boroondara Civic Centre in Camberwell: Next to the original Victorian Town Hall (not in photo) are the new Council buildings and Library. In 1975 planning began for these new council offices with the second and third buildings opening in 1978, designed by mid-century modern architects Mockridge Stahle and Mitchell. The striking precast white reconstructed stone structural frames and round header windows are a reference to the original town hall (and perhaps a passing nod to the Fascist architecture of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana in Rome).
The Camberwell Library (with multicoloured glass windows), whose official opening in September 2012 redeveloped an old tired building into a new vibrant and functional building. With the $21 million Camberwell Library and Office Project, Abigroup together with it’s consultants, contractors and suppliers have transformed this aged facility into a sustainable new asset for the citizens and staff of The City of Boroondara.
