Salthouse Community Centre | The City Renewal Authority with Philip Leeson Architects and Munns Sly Moore Architects

The City Renewal Authority’s Salthouse Community Centre is a testament to the creation of community–engaged and sustainable community spaces. Named after Sue Salthouse, a champion of inclusivity, this innovative project revitalises Haig Park while honouring its heritage.
With a modest budget of $2.2m, the Salthouse embodies sustainable design, utilising salvaged materials and adaptive reuse to blend seamlessly into its surroundings. Its multifunctional rooms cater to diverse needs, fostering a sense of belonging for people of all abilities.
Despite challenges like heritage constraints and the impact of COVID–19, the collaborative design process delivered a great outcome. The City Renewal Authority’s CEO, Malcolm Snow, says that the Salthouse stands as a beacon of activity, enhancing the park’s vitality and connectivity.
“As we celebrate this milestone, we invite the community to embrace the Salthouse as their own, a space for people from all walks of life to meet in Haig Park’s heritage landscape.”
