Convic were recently honoured to win the esteemed National AILA Award of Excellence for Play Spaces for the Onslow Youth Space we designed and constructed.
Located in one of the most remote (and hottest!) places in Australia, the space is now an essential part of the Onslow community and has contributed to a positive change in the local youth culture, fostering heath and inclusiveness in the community.
Convic were originally engaged to deliver a skate park, but through an intensive consultation process with community it was identified that further activation was required and the scope changed to focus on a multifunctional youth space. In addition, an ambassador group was formed which consisted of children ranging in age from 5 – 16 years and this consultation process has given the ambassador group and the community a strong connection with the space, having had ownership of the process and direct input into active programming and design outcomes.
