Hunt Architects acknowledge the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and conduct our business.
We pay our respects to Elders past and present. We value their continuing culture and contribution to the life of our nation, regions and cities.
Hunt Architects are excited to announce our latest education project – Mandurah’s newest TAFE campus. South Metropolitan TAFE has recently unveiled its new state-of-the-art facility, marking a significant step forward in providing specialized training for the thriving hospitality and tourism industries in the Peel region. This hospitality and tourism training centre is part of the State Government’s extensive investment in upgrading TAFE infrastructure throughout Western Australia.
The architecture will be accentuated by a captivating artwork. Local Noongar artists Maitland Hill and Kerry Stack collaborated with glass artist Rick Vermey to create a striking digital collage titled ‘Djena Bidi Koora Koora Mila – Pathways from Past to Future.’ This artwork beautifully celebrates the rich human, animal, and plant life of the greater Peel Region, adding an artistic touch to the facility.
The newly introduced facilities encompass a live-works restaurant equipped with a production kitchen and dining room, two industry-standard training kitchens of full size, a classroom dedicated to cookery and barista demonstrations, an information technology classroom, and a student hub. The building also houses top-notch hair and beauty training facilities, featuring dedicated spaces for beauty therapy and massage, along with a brand new hair salon accessible to the public.
We are thrilled about the opportunities that this new facility will bring to Western Australia, enabling individuals to acquire the skills needed to become job-ready professionals who can seamlessly transition into the workforce.
