Pinjarra Bowling Club

Service: Architecture | Project: Pinjarra Bowling Club and Home Community Care Centre | Location: Pinjarra

This project was the first of its kind, combining a sporting club and a community facility to form one single entity. The concept behind the project is that by involving the elderly and people with disabilities in community activities, their quality of life will improve.
