In 2017, a new inner-city cultural and leisure centre was built in the Melbourne metropolitan area, whose architectural inspiration came from traditional traditions of the Aboriginal tribes 'Boon Wurrung' and 'Kulin People'. The symbolism centres on the protection of the community under the wings of Bunjil, a creator god who appears in the form of an eagle - hence the name of the cultural and leisure centre: Bunjil Place. HESS TIMBER, a company of the HASSLACHER Group, was entrusted with the planning, production and delivery of the free-form glued laminated timber components, consisting of pre-assembled cassettes including steel work and connections, for this project. The project has already won several national and international awards due to its extraordinary architecture and complex structure.
