WARNING: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that the following page may contain images of deceased persons.
‘Dala Yooro’ (meaning Little Gum Trees), is a new facility catering for a 66-place childcare centre. The building incorporates a shared entry foyer and includes renovations to the existing administration and cultural rooms of the adjacent building.
In collaboration with GEGAC, early concepts developed a structural form for the building that was derived from the wing of 'Booran the Pelican', an Aboriginal Dreamtime symbol from the Gippsland lakes region.
