YMCA Broken Hill re-imagined

AJ+C was engaged to re-imagine and redesign the existing centre into a unified, inviting, open plan facility while preserving the cultural heritage of the centre within Broken Hill.

Contemporary facility preserving cultural heritage

YMCA Broken Hill’s ambition was to create a contemporary facility to address operational inefficiencies and better serve the local community while preserving the cultural heritage of the site.

Integrated Wellness Centre

The new Integrated Wellness Centre packs a lot in to support both the physical health and mental wellbeing of the entire community.

  • • flexible group exercise rooms,
  • • a cardio and resistance studio,
  • • gymnasium,
  • • squash courts,
  • • showers and change rooms,
  • • administration offices
  • • publicly available meeting rooms,
  • • lettable tenancies for allied health, creche, retail, café,
  • • and youth hub for school aged children to meet, study and play in a safe and secure environment

  • AJ+C successfully integrated the existing heritage items into design, both in aesthetic and operational terms, and has gained invaluable experience with the complexities of retaining and restoring older heritage buildings. We worked closely with YMCA and received enthusiastic and positive feedback on design decisions such as retaining the existing heritage structure.
