Mary Davis Library and Community Centre Baldivis

The recent completion of Mary Davies Library and Community Centre has provided Baldivis not only with new community facilities and a new found identity, but also provides the visitors with an inspiring sensual experience. It blurs the lines between indoors and outside, nature and building, new technology and tradition, intimate restrained retreats and large expressive spaces.

The project is based on passive solar design principles, is highly insulated and double glazed. The environmental impact of the building is further minimised through a heat recovery system, conditioned air supply through under floor disbursement and a large Photovoltaic System.

A key feature of the design concept and the library and function hall spaces for the Mary Davies Library and Community centre are the structural trees and uninterrupted timber ceilings or canopies. ETCs lighting design and MondoLuce’s light fittings allowed us to achieve our vision of a clean, services free ceiling by using the iGuzzin Le Perroquet projector up-lights to indirectly illuminate the large open flexible spaces. Equally set around each structural tree column these expressive light fittings add to the overall design feature and have become an integral part of the design.

Apart from the visual appearance ETCs approach to the overall lighting design with lights only mounted at low levels, allows easy accessible servicing of all light fittings, even within a large open spaces and ceiling heights up to 9 metres.
