Empowering young people

PCYC Grafton has revitalised and transformed an existing lacklustre club into a landmark community facility for the town of Grafton. This project is one of 14 current projects AJ+C is undertaking for PCYC NSW. PCYC have a vision to be Australia’s pre-eminent youth organisation working with Police and community to empower young people to reach their potential. They are embarking on an ambitious building program across the state to manifest this vision, and AJ+C is extremely proud to be part of such an important initiative.

Getting young people active in life

This project saw significant alterations and additions to an existing run-down club building. New works consisted of welcoming and secure entry, café, boxing room, youth drop-in space, teaching space, administration space, parking and amenities. The area of the new works is approximately 1300m². A key issue with this project is the way PCYC are striving to present themselves and their brand in positive and welcoming manner in order to achieve their mission of getting young people active in life.

A safe home for the community

Our design is bright, transparent, legible and welcoming. The front façade is beautifully proportioned, elegantly detailed and well-lit at night. It is our hope that our architecture can positively contribute to PCYC’s vision, and result in a facility where the community feels safe and at home.
