Inspired by stories told by the Bunurong and Boon Wurrung people, the traditional owners and inhabitants of the land, Bunjil Place has quickly become a central hub for everyone in the community.
The City of Casey, along with FJMT, Taylor Thomson Whitting, and Anova., have blended the history of the land with the technology of today and created one of the first civic buildings of its kind.
Bunjil Places houses the Casey library, the theatre, the council offices themselves, as well as diverse spaces for the community to come together in celebration, exhibition, reflection, or even relaxation on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The interior architecture that encloses the space is truly unique with natural laminated timber webbed across the high ceiling reaching down to lightly touch the floor in the entry foyer.
Even before the centre was complete, Bunjil Place was already bringing the community together; numerous companies worked in synergy to supply lighting for this incredible project. The final lighting design is beautiful, and we’re proud to have our Swerve LED front and centre.
Bordering the reception desk and over two of the theatre doors, the Swerve highlights the wood panelling and draws attention to the horizon. As you’re walking towards the belly of the building, you pass the cafe where the Swerve runs from the preparation area and arcs around the edge of the seating, entwining the two spaces.
It’s largely with thanks to the finesse of Product Consultant, Adrian Marturano, that this curly LED fits so seamlessly into its space. Part of the brief was to minimise visual clutter, so our Swerve was mounted into a ceiling cavity in the wood panelling that was built to house it.
Adrian describes the final result as “graceful and contemporary,” and he believes it’s this style of innovative thinking that has allowed the history of the land to so sculpt Bunjil Place thanks to the City of Casey, FJMT, Taylor Thomson Whitting, and Anova.
