Kookaburra

Newcastle, NSW

This striking new Warehouse, Administration, Sales and Training Facility provided Kookaburra Education Resources (KER) with a new Headquarters purpose built to support their growing business of distribution of Educational Products to Schools and Tertiary Education providers. The facility is centrally located at Steel River in Newcastle to service the east coast of Australia, and for close proximity to the Port of Newcastle.

The project comprised a 2,900m squared warehouse and a 2-storey attached customer Service and Sales Centre, with provision for future expansion. The bold architecture evolved from a brief to not only provide a modern efficient warehouse, but also reflect the fun side of education, with the use of bright colours, materials and patterns that produces a dynamic and playful façade that captures the values of Kookaburra.
