Victorian Design Challenge Award winning Local Time designers Dr Sanne Oostermeijer and Matthew Dwyer have developed a design guide outlining a new architectural model for youth justice facilities that are ‘small-scale, integrated in the local community, therapeutic and capable of differentiated security’.
The Victorian Design Challenge Jury concluded that ‘Dwyer and Oostermeijer demonstrated a sophisticated understanding of how design can contribute to the resilience of Victoria’s youth community by maintaining connections with family, education, health services and place. Keeping these vulnerable young people in appropriate facilities within their local communities provides a much better chance for their futures.’
The Local Time Design Guide will be launched at an event at the University of Melbourne tonight.
