Waterloo Community Centre

Waterloo Community Centre enjoyed a $3.5 million makeover in 2012, thanks to joint funding from the City of Sydney and the federal government.

An unused amenities block in a former life, the centre now boasts sustainable design features, including a green roof, natural ventilation, energy-efficient lighting and recycled materials.

Local architects Collins and Turner were awarded the Sir John Sulman Medal for their design, an honour shared by the Sydney Opera House and the Queen Victoria Building.

Situated near Waterloo Oval and the skate park, the community centre is now the base for Weave.
