In the series return of ‘Community Designs’, we look at the Craftworks project, orchestrated and designed by the team at CHT Architects. In their own words, Craftworks was “inspired by the Bauhaus movement and designed to support and encourage collaborative thinking. Craftworks will become an ecosystem of its own in which tenants share ideas, inspiration and momentum. Containing a gallery, theatre, creative hub, café, wellness centre and rooftop gardens, Craftworks is a lifestyle for businesses who are passionate about their craft. The holistic nature and “community connectedness” of Craftworks continues with a “closed-loop” approach to sustainability, inspired by permaculture farming. This includes the use of sustainable materials and energy attributes such as solar paneling and biophilic elements, as well as a genuine “farm-style ecosystem” that includes a rooftop orchard and veggie garden, chickens, café-food-scrap recycling/composting and even beehives!”
