Piara Waters Library: Armadale’s New Hub of Learning

In collaboration with the City of Armadale, we are excited to showcase the long-awaited Piara Waters Library. Recently featured in Your Local Examiner, the project is due for completion in 2024. The facility will be an integral part of the community, providing a dynamic space for learning, creativity, and connection.

Situated in Armadale, the Piara Waters Library will be conveniently located on the same site as the Piara Waters Pavilion. This strategic placement creates a seamless connection between the library and the existing sports facility, forming a cohesive community hub that caters to a wide range of interests and activities. Spanning over 1000sqm, the Piara Waters Library is designed with the community in mind. It’s a place where residents of all ages can come together to learn, engage, and explore.

The library’s comprehensive design includes a Youth Area, engaging and empowering local young people through a creative room, gaming zone, stage, computing area, and a flexible meeting room, inspiring curiosity and community involvement. In the Library Wing, an array of book storage and inviting seating options cater to quiet intellectual exploration, with a visually stimulating children’s learning area encouraging creativity and education. Adjacent, multi-functional meeting rooms adapt to presentations, study groups, and meetings. The Computer & Study Zone enhances digital literacy and research capabilities through public computers and dedicated spaces for focused learning, group projects, and quiet contemplation. This comprehensive environment meets the diverse learning and recreational needs of the community, from the youth to avid readers and researchers.
