“Providence in Ripley Valley will deliver an entire new town in one of the fastest developing areas of south-east Queensland. Over the next 20 years Providence will be constructed across 670 hectares, approximately three times the size of Brisbane’s CBD land mass and will be the largest single development in the Ripley Valley… Providence’s plan also includes a future town centre including a modern main street style, supermarket, retail shops and a civic town park.” – Amex Corporation
The Providence Neighbourhood Centre designed by Ellivo draws inspiration from the existing context and will feature a natural material selection with a balance of raw and modern textures including brick, timber and metals. exposed roof truss structure. Sections of exposed raw-timber roof truss construction allows natural lighting to enter the building through full-building width skylights. Views toward the Ripley Valley and surrounds are maintained through the building’s open plan design, and full height windows where possible throughout. Design for future-use was core to the design with considered placement and selection of structural elements and materials. The Neighbourhood Centre will feature a variety of public amenity spaces including community spaces, café, and parkland recreation with adventure play.
